Wipika Session 168

Postby simple » Tue Jul 01, 2003 9:01 am

Has anyone used one of these? I'm looking for a light wind board that goes well in chop, but I weigh 110kgs. I've got an underground magic carpet at the moment which is fantastic but a bit flat in the rocker line for the choppy mess that I usually kite in. Any suggestions gratefully received.

Cheers

The problem is the sea conditions where I kite. There is always a nasty chop and my current UG Magic Carpet (158x43) is too flat in the tips and doesn't handle the chop well. My thinking is a slightly longer board with more rocker in the tips would do the trick.
