Hi, does anybody have news on these two boards?
Differences in construction materials and performance?
Which one do you recommend and Why?
Thanks.
Tio.

haha... you are willing to buy a 2011 race board? in the meantime (sommer 2010) the pros are racing on 2012 prototipes... so when you buy an "up to date" raceboard it's already 1-1,5 year absolete.

I disagree

You will be happy with either of your purchases,

"next years boards" are not going to be any faster if you dont take the time to learn how to ride them. The fastest guys out there are the ones putting time in on the water, learning their board.

I haven't sailed them but I have ridden the Airush Monaro quite a bit and that board is extremely easy to ride, which is good if you are just getting into racing.

Ok, I ride the North LTD 2011. It is OK for moderate wind, but as for realy light wind you will need a board with minimum 70+ wide, 3 fin setup and 30+cm long fins. Besides of course a biger kite (min 14) and 40-50m lines. Than you can race in 2 knots of wind. No of production board can do that now, but many customs can. Racing in that wind has nothing to do with your spent time on the water, because there are no critical speeds at that wind wich would be hard to control.
With a 14 Rebel '11 and 40 lines I can race in 5 knots, when the wind drops below that, tha board does not glide anymore, so it's not going upwind at all. A fried of mine has build a board himself (180cmx70cm) and that board goes upwind in realy light wind without gliding.
So riding technique starts at 6-7 knots, below that there is more matter of right equipment.

With .



That is not quite true.

Racing in light winds (less than 10 knots) is far mor technical than riding in moderate winds. Any mistake is punished with a large loss of time. Tacking is much much harder when you have very little power reserves in the kite, and it is super important to stay planing to keep power in the kite.

As the gap in the equipment is getting smaller and smaller it is really important to have your tactics and riding skills at a good level, so it's really important to train as much as possible and get used to the equipment you have.

My advice is..get in touch with one of the designers and ask for a board design that is suitable for your size..then start trainning,learn how to tack and jibe.That is all to it my friend
