Evening gents,

I am planning on starting the race series this year and as I am on FS kit, I plan to use the FlyRace...

thoughts on competing on a twin tip against 4fin race directionals?

competing on a twin tip will be a great challenge if u think agout it twin tips go because of edging that is exactly what eats up your power in the kite raceboards ride fairly flat and rely on the fins for lift and direction so they are more efficent

I would definetly stick to the course board
aguera has boards that are roughly the same price as the fly race and will definetly give you a better advantage over a TT even if it is designed for racing

Contrary to popular belief, you don NOT edge the Flyrace.

I have attached a picture. You ride it flat just like a directional Racer.

I am not sure that the Aguera Board is cheaper. If I remember correctly the Flyrace will only cost about a 1000 Euros including the Fin. I am sure the Aquera is not cheaper.

If you are just getting into racing and do not have the time or skill to learn how to fast tack a directional, then there is not easier raceboard that is competitive and will let you get results.

Another thing about it that is great, is that it is far more transportable. Its snowboard construction so it does not get dinged as easily as a normal courseboard.

It is definitely a great alternative, and it beats the pants out of any of the Freerace boards on the market performance wise.

price apart, the riding is really different, so it's on your personal taste to choose this TTrace (there's nothins similar with a normal big TT) or a monodirectional

for sure learning with this TT would be far more easier and faster. mono is a good feeling but there's a lot to learn

Ps: tried this board for few tacks, and liked it. for sure effective.

All good and well, but iCR 53 not a real competitive Course Race board.

I quote the Site: These are great boards for learning how to ride a raceboard and also for winning downwind races!

So basically its a fun racer and has small fins. I am sure the Flyrace will have a better VMG with it's longer fin.

Nice Video :thumb:

Would be any way to demo that board since I'm not that far to see if there is any advantage,
compared to what I'm already using in light winds with the 21m Speed 3 :?:
