Siiick!!! 💥This is it: the holy grail of kiteboarding... FOR ME! OK, what makes it a race/speedboard? Sorry about the ignorant question. Wouldn’t a nice wakestyler TT + well powered kite do as well?

Hi Girl, the original purpose was to build a board for high-speed-carving in flat or shallow water (depth 5 cm): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2jAXzqo66Y
Carving and jibing with up to 70 km/h. It´s safer to do that with a directional, because you can put the widest point more in front for more support and control in difficult situations.
Meanwhile I realized that I can use it as a waveboard, too. Especially, if the waves are as long, clean and smooth as in Hvide Sande. Fits perfect together :cool2:

Thank you! Yes, I understand now. True, a TT could never go that fast, nor can it carve n turn like a directional. Makes sense! Great spot, great runs! Thanks for sharing 💥⚡️⚡️
