Wondering if anyone has paddle surfed with it, is it buoyant enough? Weight 160

My paddle surfing level would be newbie (live on lake Michigan so go like 5 times a year). I can get up on 7 6 board but never tried anything smaller. Going to Florida in a bit might ship it down if so. Heard the board is awesome though. Excited for her to come in the mail :wink:

I have not but have heard of people doing that. My buddy uses his 6'0'' global and his wight is the same as yours. I think the 5'9'' is more buoyant.

...and yes the 5'9'' is a killer board. :-)

edit: I think perhaps as a newbie surfer it might be a bit of a struggle tho...

I wouldnt count on it :roll:

If you kitesurf with the "slower" style and bigger boards, and you are a killer surfer (experienced and in shape) - then you can use the same board for surf and kitesurf :thumb:

But for most, there is a difference, and you can not use the same board.

At least not possible if a newbee in surf, thats for sure.

And for many (most ?) experienced, the kitesurf and surfboard is not the same.

Then you find some that CAN use the same board as said, also on this forum - so it is definitely possible, indeed, but in most cases not good :naughty:
