well then if you are getting it for that cheap, go for it. remember this board with your weight will not be that good in light wind so it's more of a high wind board.

also the f-ones boards are double the price of the best boards and are made in carbon fibre with wood core. I like the finish of the board even though it doesn't have a tiger or something else on it like the f-one.

If you cant come back to the wind ( going upwind), blame it on yourself and not the board. it's all about technique and in what condition your using it.

Shannon is in town for the Gorge Games, he let me try his 130. I am 75kg and ride a 132 Slingshot SX. The board rode super smooth and hooked upwind like a champ. I think I might have to get me one. :)

Hi ferrarista
you confort my opinion to keep this board when u say that I musn't blame the board if I can't come upwind
I hope that it's because of my little level and that it will be better with the board when I will improve
it's right that although I have to walk for the moment to come back from where I left, I enjoy riding with this board

Hi . your level is gonna improve the more you kite. I would keep the best board because it is a good board. It was the same for me at the beginning, but I was on a shitty board and I still was able to go upwind with enough practice. when you learn on a shitty board, any better board is a delight and easy after that.

as my cousin put it, the board goes upwind like a rocket, amazing pop and holds an edge like crazy.

I'm also gonna get a 124 best pro , but I weigh 67kg. this board will fit me nice.

so it all depends in what condition you kite and which kite your using,etc..if your in low wind with a small board and not a big enough kite to pull you , of course you gonna have problems.
