Best huge pop board for a big guy???

Postby Guttorm » Tue Oct 15, 2013 8:46 pm

I need tips for buying a realy fast, huge pop board for a 108kg (202cm) guy kiting in a gusty fjord in Norway. Maybe Shinn the player, Shinn Ultrasonic or other similar boards... what do you think??

Oldschool guy that wants to jump much higher

I'm 100-105kg. Really like my Supershinn 135x41. Very fast . Good in the chop. I like the stock pads too. All round good board.

Nothing pops like the RRD Style. Stiff enough to drop down a kite size or just pop super big. I eventually broke mine. I still ride it and it pops well but feels a little smoother in the chop, like I added rocker. At your weight, I would most likely consider the RRD Style Biax, this would hold up better but still provide amazing pop, or the Axis Limited. Full carbon wrap like the Style but has more channels and less expensive.

+1 for the Supershinn, but maybe a 136X42 or 137X44.
Also Wainman Joke 142

They won't break.

From my experience on the raptor pro ltd thoug is it is an outstanding freeride board and my brother now rides one. But the guy has asked for huge pop and this board doesn't have that. Very smooth, fast, forgiving etc but not the best for huge pop. I have spent a fair bit of time on the 136 and 132 obviously I'm a lighter guy, but the performance characteristics are what they are.

from my uderstanding he doesn't need a board with huge pop (aka wakestyle) but a quick freeride board for send jumps (aka oldschool)
