Normal surfboard for kitesurfing

Postby slaterson19 » Sun Jul 14, 2013 12:18 am

Can I use my surf tech epoxy surfboard for kitesurfing or will it fall apart? I'm not gonna do any jumps with it. Just using the kite to catch the wave.

hold on there buddy..which construction is it?

If it is tuflite then carry on...if not they have a lot of epoxy constructions that will not hold up very well...but it might for a while...

I currently use the Hynson Black Night fish (which I also surf with) for low wind which is made out of Thermal Epoxy Compression and I have not have had any problem with it, I even jump it. I have also used polyurethane surf boards but I don't jump with those.
