I just got this board in the mail it looks sick! Slotstik carbon pro with only one sheet of carbon so it still has some flex. The craftmanship looks top notch.
Only thing I am a little worried it might be too small/not much differant than my old zap pro, the dimensions are 53.5x20.75 when I ordered was supposed to be 54.25 and it has 1.75 rocker when was supposed to be only 1.6 in nose rocker and also has .1 in or so more in tail than advertised too. I guess they are all hand made so a little off, kind of weird though, when I order a kiteboard it is exact to specs even handmade boards, kite surfboards, etc.
Also anyone who knows board design. This boards tail outline for last foot or so is narrower than the zap pro I have. Will this make it stabler at high speed? That is one of my main drawbacks of zap pro it felt a bit bulky so I am hoping this can handle the speed a bit better and will be higher performance than the zap pro. I don't care about super light wind that much want more high performance in light-medium winds.
I could always return this and get a custom board made more for kiting, idk? I weigh 170 what you guys think? Oh I normal skimboard too which is why I want a skimboard not a kite skimboard. I have had zap pro but these new dimensions are pretty similar, I was thinking this board would be faster with less rocker but it is not to the advertised specs and the rocker is very similar to my old zap pro. This board does look sick though!
EDIT: I think I am just going to keep it. I got it on sale for really good price and it seems actually pretty differant shape than the zap when I lay right next to each other. The tail is 5/8 rather than the zap being all 3/4 and the narrower tail outline should be a significant increase in performance. The slotstik has a much larger flat spot too when I place them side by side, should make it fast. Will post review on loosethestraps after riding it for a bit hopefully this weekend if its windy!
