best boards

Postby punchy » Thu Apr 22, 2004 3:40 pm

I got my new best board the other day, being west aus and almost winter the wind is **** but i got one good day and my gawd this board is awesome. i have gone from riding a directional and twin tips that i stole from my mates thinking this was good stuff, but within 5 minutes of jumping onto this board it was easily the the most unreal board i have ever been on. why was i wasting my time on other stuff. it felt so natural underfoot i was doing jumps on my first run. i was completing triple backs and board off soon after which i had never done before. i am not an experienced rider having started the sport in january but i liked the way the board felt. it holds an edge exceptionally well does masasive jumps, it does all i want and more. i can't wait i need more wind i want to ride this thing again. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

i'm not going to deny it but i have been kiting every couple of days when there has been wind (not ant more which sucks) and i have the perfect place to learn. crash just stand up the water is only a few feet deep. if ya feel confident try anything but the beach is a bit boring. can you send some of the best girls to improve the view

Ehh.. SQ...the boards off etc... noppe not yet, but toe-side riding is great....riding blind too...until I slowly I realized that I had done something wrong....and I wasn't facing forwarded anymore.....splashsssss

Jumping is 1 bridge to fare......I have to start figuring out how that works....but further from that.. No complaints about the board.... unless smart to put some footpads on it (did that after almost 2 months)

if you ride powered up or are ligthweight its a great choice, they currently heavily back ordered on the boards though.

I am 87 kg heavy
I tried the board this evening in very light wind (quite nobody was kitesurfing) with a toro 12 m²
it seems to be ok in light wind even if it would be better with a bigger board, I hope it will be good in stronger conditions
it's a second hand one
a balsa - I don't like the external material which isn't used any more by the other brands but for the price I think that's ok
my english is poor : what do you mean with : "they currently heavily back ordered on the boards though"

I think you might be better with the 130cm board. my cousin weighs about the same and has the 130cm. he loves it.

what do you mean you don't like the external material?? my cousin likes the finish of the board.

when sq said heavily back ordered it means that best doesn't have boards in stock. waiting for new boards to arrive

I have ride today again with the board
u are right I would be better with a 130 but I got the 124 for 150 euros......so.....
no I don't really like the finish
this kind of finish as disapeared in France
I prefer the style of f one 's boards
It's a little bit difficult to come back to the wind with this board for me
except this it's ok
a+
