X-Shooter 144

Postby Toby » Wed Feb 19, 2003 12:19 pm

A custom made, which will be a series board soon.
Torsten Wickboldt from Hamburg, Germany developes these boards. You getz on it and everything is perfect: early gliding, round turns.

Only for the grip not all had the same opinion. The board can be trimmed with different fins, so you either can have a loose feeling (1.25) or a maximum grip (2.0).

Cool board, let’s see, how it will look like as series.



Editorial remark:
At the last day before editorial deadline Torsten came with the first production board to us: top quality, custom look, weight as required, even better pads, soft wide foot straps, optional Da Kine foot straps. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to test it again.

+ very light, very good riding characteristics

-- none


X-Shooter remark:
The board comes with 1.8 or 2.0 Tekkno G10 fins, soft pads, wide and soft footstraps, center grip and washers, safety setup and board bag.

Maximum 5 Pts:

Quality 5 Pts
Accessories 4 Pts
Gliding 4 Pts
Upwind 5 Pts
Grip 4 Pts
Turnabilty 5 Pts
Neutral Riding 4 Pts
