whenever I'm on the water I always have a great time with my X-Shooter 144.
At the moment they are hard to get, looks like production is too slow to settle the demand. If you get one, lucky you!

Litewave boards rock.

The 2002 Pitbull floats my boat. The new 3 stage wake style rocker has a tun of pop. Big wind range too.

Naish boards break... response from Naish UK re a warranty claim? You jump too high and land too flat!! Der, hello.

i've a f-one tt160 and love it...special the assym straps and pads are realy cool. And this board only weigths 2,5 kg.

I think the brunotti lord off hellfire is also a very nice board, but heard they break some times...

I've heard good stuff about all the above boards. You're really lucky if you get the chance to test out different boards before riding. I'm really happy with my Slingshot Drake.

Thanks for all the help! I'm sure your boards appreciated their owners shout outs. I'm thinking of buying a wave tray or slingshot drake for most riding and a little fat bastard slingshot or NRG for light air.

Any thoughts, especially on the mutant-semidirectional style board?

Good winds

I got a Drake also. Recently 2 other guys have bought a Drake also.
Only thing I need is a bigger board for real light winds. So your choice to get a 2 board quiver from which a Drake is the smallest would be very good.

It has taken a lot of beating and still is in 100% shape(except from scratches from sliding on land :wink: )

if you would settle for the next slingshot skate series board up in size, I have a Jarvis for sale at a good price in the C2C section of the kiteforum.

I use an underground 6ft directional, great upwind board. I use an underground 141 LT, still ok for upwind but need far more power than directional...
