Mountain boards probably better, Ive just bought a s/h Dirtsurfer but havent had chance to try it yet, problem is the Dirtsurfer only goes 1 way (the steering wheels at the front)so if you want to go backwards youve gotta get off and swap to the other side !

A mountainboard is much better. I had a dirtsurfer and it wasn't much fun. It was a difficult to get started because you had to balance way to much. I went to http://www.mountainboardz.com and purchased an MBS Comp16. Works a lot better. Now I can go both ways too!

You definently have to use a dirtsurfer with a kite it allows you to go upwind and hold down your edge because its a thinner board. We've reached speeds of 30-40 miles on a dirtsurfer with a kite.

A dirtsurfer has the ability to boost so big and do tricks like candlesticks, double backflips and one-footers

Plus the decks flex which allows you to hold in you edge more for max boost. It doesn't really take that long to get started on a dirtsurfer with a kite just practice going down hills.

Check out the site http://www.dirtsurfer.com

The only downside with a mountain board is long grass, where you need to modify the board to handle larger, thinner tires. For hard packed sand, stock comp 16 tires work really well.

Aren't dirtsurfers unidirectional ?
What about the weight ?
