I've had an Eclipse 159 demoboard. I've used it a couple of weeks. I'm also about 73 kilo's.

For me the board is still too big to be able to control the power of my Rhino's(16 + 9.3). For light/medium wind it's OK.

I got a Slingshot Drake (147 by 37cm) now and absolutely love it.(don't tell my wife :wink: )
I can control the power of my Rhino's with it and it gives more control in waves. The Drake also feels very skaty.

Hi Bruno,
Depends on your level of expertise.
See page 12 of this forum for more details about kiting in Mauritius.
Hope to see you on the water here, 2628836 is my phone number if you want to get hold of me, or kite in the north of the island.
Regards
Nico
