I have had quotes artfully taken out of context by LetsFlyaKite on numerous occasions, but never have I had a quote attributed to me that I never had typed. iriejohn - I think you should clarify that the above "bla bla bla" was not in any of my posts, but rather you intentional created a quote and attributed it to me that I did not post. - But I can accept that this is an expression of you having trouble comprehending the premise of my argument. So I will give it another go at simplification for you.iriejohn wrote: ↑Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:02 amOh, I've read it with the utmost care even moving my finger under the words while my mouth moved.

Thanks for pointing that out, and that is definitely subjective.
That's why I ride surfboards almost exclusively now and put up with their limitations.early bird2 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 02, 2017 8:35 amMatteo V , I think 3 and 4 are very close , the difference is the sector rider needs to know how to tack otherwise the big lwtt wins easy . I don't know if this is because I'm from windsurfing but for me directionals and surfboards are so much more fun even if the lwtt would beat me on an upwind leg because I have missed a tack , I won't trade for a TT .
What if you kitesurf in 10+ waves? Would you still be sorry if you are on 6'2 step up. Especially, if you are tall and heavy.
Good point! Guns are a bit longer with the narrow tail reducing the surface area rear, thus necessitating some more length out front. Thanks for the correction, but it is more of an exception.
Yup! I agree with you on this too. Small to medium TT's make fine wave boards for those that like that kind of feel. It is not my cup of tea, but it looks good. When you get to the doors, they are limited in the surf - like you said - to the point of entertainment for bystanders. Still, on the outside, they will get upwind better.BigZ wrote: ↑Mon Oct 02, 2017 5:14 pm
But not to digress to far from the main topic of this thread. There is one more factor that has not been taken into account - water state. Would LWTT still perform in breaking waves, whitewater mess, etc? And to pre-empt "jumping over the waves comments" - we are discussing light wind conditions. I have seen people trying to negotiate shore break on door like TTs in light wind and it was not pretty, although quite entertaining .
My 2 cents
