If you get a chance then try out the Xenon Rayo.
It is very soft and comfy but also delivers.
And it has a two yea\r warranty !

I was totally stoked about the green Slingshot boards and bought a 2012 Misfit and hated it.
But I think their boards are very good for some kiters and I like what I heard about the Asylum.
I think the Asylum is in the same class as my Wainman Joke.
Surely don't think the Asylum would provide what the OP asked for though.


I was just trying to be funny. I did ride the Asylum a lot this week and was pleasantly surprised by the feedback I got from it. Very smooth,surprising upwind when marginally powered,but the stiffness is very noticeable, hence the great pop.

Not to mention the exquisite build quality of these xenon boards as well. The best I have ever come across

Hi,

Shinn Monk 136x44 (if you still can get hold of one) or any of the Xenon boards.

Cheers
