Review for Airush Protoy / Exile 2007 135x47

Times tested: 2-5

Good: I couldn't believe that this board was so fun. Just like in 2006, the '07 Exile was super easy to get up on a plane and immediately start driving upwind. There is a noticable difference in the way the '07 edges though. The board is way more lively. Freestyle tricks were very easy to try and land. The swing weight felt like a typical 135, not a widebody ! The '07 is way easier to brake loose when you wanted to slide it around or go blind. It's overall weight feels considerably lighter than the '06. The greatest this about the board is that you don't feel forced to keep it flat on the water just to keep it going. This also made edging against heavier gusts super easy. Overall you are left feeling like you actually did something in lightwind!
