Hey Adrian,
Welcome to the forum man, when are you gonna make a wavetray for really light wind (sub 10 knots), something really wide, like 49-50 cm?
The Slingshot LFT seems to do ok, a bit less powered than a bigger directional but way better for light wind than a narrower TT.
Keep them boards comin man.
Jo

Thanks for the feedback. Dwight,what is the lighest wind you can get out on your wide WT?

thanks


I'm limited by my kite, not the board.


Hmmm, my impression always is that its the combination. For example, I tried the 147 wavetray against my lightwind carved, and the carved got me going and charging MUCH earlier.

This is also a board to look out for if you want a light wind weapon.

My 147 WT is a special WIDE light wind board, so the kite is the limiting factor.
