This is funny! You think that a slow board is necesarily a bad thing, it's not. The speed of the board needs to be matched to the speed of the kite. Faster kites like faster boards.4)witnessed the likes of Mark Doyle, Julien Suddrat and Ben Wilson cleaning up on there production SS skate series boards?
Maybe next time you see them you should mention to them that there boards are ineficient and slow!!

I think the sport has finally reached the point where boards are being designed to match kites. Or kites are being matched to boards!I would suggest the slingshot kites (2002 models) also arn't the fastest around the window. Not as fast as lift's, airblast, x2's etc... This would probably make the slingshot boards a great match for the slingshot kites! and slingshot probably would have planned it this way!
All twin tip or wake style boards have extra grip when the front leg is pressed. This extra grip is pretty similar with all of these style boards. Some wake style boards are slippery in the tail and therefore FORCE YOU to use LESS back leg. The slippier tailed boards I've riden were narrower tailed, and or tiny finned.I have heard that some wake boards require more front leg pressure than back, but that Wave Trays require more back leg pressure than front. Can someone please explain this as it relates to board design and fin size and number? Thanks
