This board is Sick!

Postby All Out Kiteboarding » Sun Aug 08, 2010 8:16 pm

I just had one of the most fun sessions i've had in a very long time thanks to the Shinn Waterbird. Skims, wakeskates and anything strapless are definitely all fun but this board steps it up to another level of fun riding. Its smooth, edges great and has an awesome bird graphic on the bottom :-) The deck pad also kicks ass! Thanks Shinn!

Nice. Is it kind of the same concept as LF twinskim?

yah, pretty much the same idea...overall size/shape is pretty much identical but with different tip/tail shape.

the waterbird has an Alabasia wood core and it shaped differently than the LF board. The Shinn is probably much lighter and the deck pad looks much better.
