The Makos have a lot of intresting qualities, but light wind preformance is not their strong point.hced wrote:Haven't tried any of the two.
However I can strongly recommend Ocean Rodeo Mako King as a light wind board. I use this one together with a North X-ride for the days with more wind.
Eventhough people say the King isn't the best light wind board, I think it's brilliant since it's fun to ride even in light wind conditions it basically eats the chop, it's possible to do some jumps, works in wave and a hugh upwind performance. Perhaps most important you don't have rush to shore to change for a smaller board when it picks up, it's a great board in those conditions as well.
Bad thins about the King, only thing I found is it's foam core, that certainly makes it more fragile then a board with wood core, however as long as you are aware of it, you should be fine.
If you go for a door or any other large TT board, make sure it's asymetrical it will eas your toeside riding a lot. With the King you dont have to bother, you will have a blast.
I weigh much more than you 105kg so I may be worng about the size for you, but my best guess is that the 163 would be better as your biggest kite is the 12.5 Ion. best to ask users closer to your weight.Tiago1973 wrote:hced: thanks for the heads-up on the Mako but will stick w/ the Doors for now... already hard to choose!
thanks for the comment.
From what u are saying FlyDoor appear to be slightly better for the given conditions within the same quality level. Any advise on the size 155x42,5 versus 163x46 ?,,,
