I love my 2011 Cabrinha Race Board 183. Maybe that's just because I haven't tried any other race boards though It can't be that bad, it's an exact copy of the Aguera CR59 mass produced by Cabrinha instead of hand built.droffats wrote:Those Cab race boards sucked
In the price range I'd say perhaps a used race board if you can find one. I'd say your pick is pretty much dead on.knot_moving wrote:Q1 - Are there other good options in this price-range?
Q2 – Will the Sector be usable the way I want or should I bite the bullet and push thru the higher learning curve on the Cabrinha?
You should never buy a Sandwich board from Pictures alone, especially if you don't know if the previous owner took care of it properly. A lot of kiters do not maintain their Raceboards well. Especially a lot of them do not open the screw to vent the boards when the board is cooking on the beach causing the boards to delam quite quickly.davesails7 wrote:I've been looking for a used 69 cm board to come on the market, but I haven't really seen any. I'm guessing:
1. Most people try to sell their old boards locally to avoid the hassel of shipping giant boards and to build the local fleet.
2. The disasters with the 2012 boards from North and Royal posted here probably stopped people from upgrading to 2012 boards, so they are holding on to their 69 cm boards from 2011.
There were some Royal boards for sale, but after the recent posts about royal, there's no way I would buy one from someone across the country from pictures alone.
