o my bad i though you were talking about the 2009 i own a 2008 freestyle fish i like it it has some volume to it if you are buying it for light wind it is not the board for it because i have noticed that when on an edge it kill a lot of the kites power. but overall it is a fun board

I own a FF 08 an have the same weight as you: Not a true light wind board for our weight (but not ba in lighter winds either)- big fun in small to medium waves - with or without straps - absolutely recommendable -

I have one for sale. PM me if interested. I'm 105kgs, and it's lacking in volume for my taste, unfortunately. Fun, though.

I'm 75kg, for me it's a good lightwind option. However, to maximize the low-end you need to get on a plane like a windsurf board. Keep your back foot way forward (on the middle pad) and the board flat until you're fully planing.

This is a good review, be sure to look at the follow-up comments at the bottom: http://www.southcentralkiteboarders.com ... efish.html
