With those straight rails and that nice amount of volume, you’re away in a nano second. So no pfaffing and obviously an asset on marginal days. Turning on to a wave (we only rode it in onshore) and you expect it to struggle to find an edge, but no. It’s straight in there. We generally rode it with quad set up and if held a line beautifully, even on steeper head high sections. It really digs in and gives you confidence to put it into sketchier situations. When the T-Rex really comes into its own though is cutting back and in flatter sections.
There is so much float in the tail that it keeps you moving - you just can’t bog it down.. Whereas a standard shortboard can just get stuck when you try and jam it back into the whitewater and bounce of down the line, the T-Rex is game. It’s a lot of fun. Air wise and your probably best off watching the clips than relying on my experience, but it pops up a treat and the wind gets under the board and its wide nose nice and evenly giving a lot of control. And did I miss the nose? Did I catch that significant square chunk up front in the lip at all? Amazingly no, not once.
It’s kind of refreshing to have something completely different turn up in an odd shaped box. But even more refreshing to see how beautifully it rides. You don’t have to be an above the lip maestro to feel the love either, it just rips in the onshore. Love it.
Not a bad crit from the UK kitesurf mag, there's more but that's the performance bit the rest they just go on about how it's built and other marketing bollox, that's the relevant bit.
