Pocket board width

Postby Jyoder » Tue Aug 15, 2017 2:36 am

What's the smallest pocket board you've enjoyed? I have a diy blank I'm getting ready to glass but I'm thinking it might be too small, specifically too narrow at 40x15 inches. (100x38cm). Anyone ride one this small?

If you weigh more than 70kg/150 lbs or so, 19-20 inches would be a lot easier to waterstart and accelerate with less kite power. I wouldn't enjoy that width (or length) due to both my meager skills, and ~82kg.
