What were you seeking in picking it up? I think the T60 is a move race oriented shape with good sized bevels and a tapered ass, but surface rides quite nicely.
I have owned both. I find them quite different.....very surprisingly so. I ask because I have a free ride friend who wanted the lightest possible board (for boosting) and went to an all out race board.....very narrow, virtually nil flat on the bottom.....almost un-ridable on the surface of the water. I would say the lightest and most sporty and versatile I have tried was the T40 carbon....but no longer offered.Pedro Marcos wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 7:33 am
I have one of older vintage I don't like for that very feature.Pedro Marcos wrote: ↑Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:37 pm- The fact that the bottom of the board its only flat on a very small area makes the board behave in a very weird way when on the water, it seems that the board just want to go in the current/wave/chop direction making it much harder to handle when compared to a flat board.
Indeed, when racing, pushing for the highest speed using tons of power in the kite, wide stance is a big plus. Freeriding with small kite that kind of stance can be uncomfortable unless you ride very aggressively.- Stance: This race boards come with a really wide stance, so wide, that with the front foot on the strap and the back foot out of the strap the balance its not good, this boards are made to be on the straps and the time, it takes time to get used to such a wide stand.
Are you talking about foiling jibes/tacks or touch-down ones? Small size is not a problem as long as the shape is right for you. I think you'd like a board like Levitaz Exo. Although only 43cm wide, flat bottom is full width so it feels very stable. It is also quite light. Due to its 125cm length it may be challenging at first doing touch-down jibes in choppy water.- Dimensions: I thought that being smaller it would be easier to do foil jibes and tacks, but its not, it seems the board its much more sensitive to foot inputs and goes out of balance much easier.
Center to center of straps: Widest is about 77cm and narrower about 66cm.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 9:11 amAnd what IS the stance width, most narrow and widest on the Comet Pedro ?
Center strap to center strap that is - just to have an idea what you are talking about, as it is very individual.
I ride 65 cm, not wide nor narrow stance, most often, but am only 175 cm tall.
Others like TahoeDirk prefer 70-75 cm, and some only ride in narrow stance.
