Review for Nobile 666 Ext 2006 139x46 Times tested:
-riding upwind switchstance
-powerful landings need practiseReview:
with the ext, nobile basically created a new kind of board.
their approach for a lightwind board is different from others: they took a board you can do anything with (loaded jumps, powered riding) and made it as big as possible.
not 'just' building a board that will go in almost no wind, they built a board that can do everything in as little wind as possible.
With the ext you'll be shooting upwind with a 12m kite when all the others are riding 16's and small boards. you'll have a better angle and go upwind better, so you'll jump a lot more.
with a smaller kite, lots of unhooked tricks are a lot easier to learn.
the upwind angle and lowend are just amazing. not as good as the f.one fiftyone or spleene door, but this board feels a lot smaller than it actually is and is fun to ride.
it is the first board i came across that is truly for every riderlevel. the pro can practise loaded handlepass-moves in low wind while the very beginner can practise the waterstart. amazing.
no brand affiliation or anything else on that one - i tried this board for three times and simply had to buy it.Rider Profile
