He used to make some really good windsurfing Boards so maybe the kite boards are also good

They look KILLER in person. Carbon fiber....in black or silver. HE told me that they are the same boards Jack Webb, El Lebo and guys are using today. I don't see the infamous Sean Ordonez putting his name on a board that isn't top of the line and meeting his standards. One thing I didn't talk to him about was price. Maybe it's on his website, dunno. Haven't explored it in full. It's a little TOO flashed out for me.

In short, the boards look KILLER!

Never tried,but a friend of mine has one of them and they are quite heavy for their size. I heard they ride like many others boards on the market.

Any other input on the SOS boards?
They are now in shop for a while, and I have one Surfstix 140 on order (silver model, T-Glass technology).
Just curious if I made the right choice....
I am 80kgs, average skills, TT rider, expecting to use it in 12-28 knots in flat and chopy water, using straps.

Some said that SOS boards are pretty heavy.
I have checked one in a shop and it seems reasonably light for me.
Is there anybody with weight figures? and with comparison to other boards/brands?

well, the sos boards are not customs. if you put it up against a lewis, empire or carved (and so on) wakestyle custom, they seem heavy.
on the other hand, go into a shop and check naish, wipika, f-one (and so on) boards against the sos -> it doesn't seem heavy then ...
