First of all, I want to let you all know that I am in no way affiliated with OZKiteboards and paid almost full price for it - I got it on eBay.
The board is truly amazing - the rail is so thin and the board does not have much float so it lets you dig that edge really deep in the water --> great upwindability (this is similar to sailboats with keels that are capable of going upwind at a sharp angle).
Last time I was out on LBI with my friend and it took him 6 tacks (is that the right term?) to get to the same spot where it took me 2 and he is a more advanced rider.
The board I have is 137 (or 134) by 39 and I can kill the speed even when overpowered very easily because the board sinks so gracefully when edged. I notice that I really need one board as in light winds I can change the angle and make it float more.
The only problem is that the board tends to delaminate but can easily be fixed with marine epoxy and I actually just treated the edge all around as a preventative measure.

They moved to South Africa and do not respond to warranty claims. Do not buy these boards.

Dude,

He did not respond to my emails but when I asked my friend to email him pretending to be a potential buyer, he was pretty quick to respond.
