Which is the best board you ever own !?

Postby Romes_A » Wed Jul 25, 2018 5:53 pm

Hello lads !!

I have been Kiteboarding for about 15 years...

I have use many boars, but The one that I use everyday and I do not sell or change for anything is a NOBILE NHP 2011

I dont know if is the materials, contruction, shape, or all of this that make that board model unique and perfect.

I would like to buy another similar board but a bigger size.

so tell me which have been your best boards you ever own or try.

thanks and let me hear you !!

Cf raptor pro ltd.My 136 is 7 yrs old and is the 1st board I haven't broke , the newer 140 is a perfect compliment for lighter winds.

Hands down, not even close, Wave Bandit Performer 4-10 Softtop. This thing shreds so hard I sold both my $800 epoxy boards.

My favourite is the RRD 5X LTD 132x39 from 2008. Nothing really fancy. Just a light, well behaving twintip that always seems to beat everything new I try. It´s getting pretty worn, but I still use it today as my main board 10 years later, which is for me pretty unbelievable since I normally change gear in action sports pretty often.

The misses would say the 'Ironing board'. Whenever it comes out she used to say - think of kiting :remybussi:

Axis LTD 2015 - 138/42.5. It's such a good board that I have about 5 or 6 mates on them now (2016-2018 shapes)

I am 115kg at the moment and it's the only board I use.

Same. Although I got a 142x44 this year for a little more bottom end. I think I like it better :D
