Hey men.

So what is the best type of TT if you want to boost to the moon in the waves.

I still want to ride some waves and need to ride through chop nicely. Some waves will be big so i need a board that is stable on the wave face.

But the primary objective is to ride as fast as possible toward the wave and boosts as long and high as possible.

I'm not a freestyler so a little lightboard for tricks is not required. But a do enjoy an epic storm session with insane wind and see conditions. So i want to be riding aggresively in those conditions.

What are your thoughts?

Given same rider, same kite, same technique of course board is a factor...Christ.

Well there is that delicate balancing act as you know. Comfort versus edging, stiffness/flex and all that jazz that you know better than most as you have built your own boards.

A lot of guys would throw in the Monk considering your description of how you want to ride.

Mako or Shinn Dundee. Dundee if you want to load and pop and the Mako if you just want to ride up the ramps.

Another vote for a monk, I have had both generations and have yet to find anything better for what you describe. For heel side hacking its supreme.

Get a Fone Trax o Tx.... good for the landing part: your knees will thank you.
Also it carves down the waves nice, even without Kitepull. Try it.

Cheers

What's the mechanism when you boost off a wave that makes the shinn jump higher than some other board like a nobile or north

Speaking of nobile last look into the design of the NHP I know someone who goes huge on that board. Edt you are right mate, technique and kite are very important, but given the same rider plummett, with the same technique plummett, then his question is about boards. He didn't ask about kite or technique and I can tell you he has the right kites AND the right technique to go big.

Get a board with heaps of flex, rocker and concave you get a softer ride but it is harder to really load up, feel the edge and go big.

Get a stiff as board, with little rocker and little concave and the load and pop increases.

He's looking for that balance between the two.
