They are worth it. The response is a little different though, if your not used to it you can hurt yourself. It takes some getting used to. I hurt my back so bad I spent my whole trip putting on topical analgesic. I wish I didn't have arthritis. Not to mention my toenail fungus disease from the ocean. That is nasty stuff. I am still trying to find a strong enough toenail fungus treatment to treat that!

thx for your clever reply...... :baby: :baby:

But i was expecting something else......

I don't mind how the board is made.....i just wanna know if with this kind of price,you can expect something "beyond the limit" on the water....

Anybody else who has really tried this "precious" ???

May be it's too expansive and no one can afford it.... :roll:

Never tried it myself, but a local kitesurfer bought one and rode it for a couple of months in South Florida. Ended up taking it back to the shop and going with a North X-ride. For the range of conditions, he said the X-ride has much better all around performance.

Does it mean that the Select is a bit more "wakestyle oriented" ????
