I have the SOL 127 this year, a super board. It gives a very solid feeling and grips the water well with its slight concave bottom. Construction is top quality. Best board I have ever had, even better than my 05 Jamie Pro (which was a very nice board).

I demo'd the 2006 Sol 130 and bought it. Was riding Jimmy Lewis Mod3s.

In the past I would switch boards/kites sizes a lot. Not now! This board w/06 Ravens gives me a ton of range that I didn't have.

try one![/url]

The new Hazes & Sols are both great boards, but you're asking about two totally differant animals here.
The Haze is a wonderful first board that can last you well and take you to a good intermediate level of kiting with ease and confidence.

The new Sol is now made by Nobile, as is the Thorn and is a terrific Pro style board.
This board should not really be considered until you are at a good intermediate level. Anything less and you will hold up your learning curve.

So it's simple, Naish are making some nice boards now...

Beginner - Intermediate... Haze
Intermediate - Advanced... Sol for powered wake style... Thorn a little more all round.

Hope this cleared things for you Eddy.

Still stuck? Try a Nobile 555, same style of construction as the Sol/Thorn, but a more forgiving ride, and top quality too.

The website doesn't appear to give any widths for the kiteboards, and the pictures sure make them look narrow - hardly wider than the footpads?

I'm hesitating between 2 sizes for the new Sol:
. 127x38.5
. 130x39.5

I weigh 80 kilos, and want a one-board quiver to ride a R6 9m and V5 14m from 12 to 35 knots.

Thanks for your help!
