I have been learning on the ks1. Switched to a rrd 40 mast and on 3 rd hour with 130 hover board. Coming along nicely.

New Hover 130 looks very interesting. I wonder how they inserted tracks into such a thin board. Waiting for a real product reviews!!!
Thats the board I landed on. Whenever it is in, I will post a pic.

The board is pretty heavy and their is a metal track where the M6 nuts are held in place. Its a cool board and pretty easy to learn on for being so minimal. Tried to post pics but they do not come through?

Yeah I can't see any pics. Its a good looking board from the commercial pics tho. I kind of which they had set some kind of other fin box..even if it was just TT fins for it...when I think of it, it would probably just have made the board more expensive for a feature I never use..so perhaps not a good idea. I alomost got lured into getting the bigger board as the video said you could use it as a skimboard. But at the end of the day I think the 130 will be the right choice for me.

I am super excited about getting the board.

On the Naishkites site it shows the bottom where you can see the slots where the m6 bolts/nuts connect. It is durable, I am just waiting on getting some wind above 14mph here in SoCal so I can get some more time on it. FYI the mast are interchangeable with AXIS, NAISH, RRD and who knows which others. I was able to borrow a RRD 40 to get some experience without the beating of the 90cm mast that came with it. I will be glad when I can get efficient enough to ride on a sub 9 meter kite. Looking at Naish & RRD single struts and the Board Riding Maui's also. So stoked to have something new to learn and be excited about kitesurfing again. https://www.naishkites.com/product/hover-130/

That's good info. I love it when equipment is standardized and interchangeable.
It generally means more options for us.
