I read that Spleen boards are really forgiving to beginners and also good in light wind ...

At first, we saw them as a good option for really light wind, but now we often ride them even when there's enough wind for smaller freestyle boards. They're fairly light and they rip upwind so fast that there's way more time for tricks and stuff than with most other boards.

[quote="Pascale wrote:... I,m not sure what you mean by "as your largest "still have fun" board".
The size and shape of a board and its dynamic behaviour (flexibility distribution over the board) determine the way it feels while being ridden.
Large boards typically are, or feel, "heavy". Boards with a negative, concave outline (like the Spleene Session) tend to prefer going straight, while boards with a (normal) convex outline tend to be easier in turns.Pascale wrote:Also, why would the RipPlus (138) and RipMax (140) be easier to work with on the water?Pascale wrote:The Rip boards have a normal convex outline. This makes them more agile on the water.
