Postby Durao » Thu Nov 28, 2013 3:48 pm

Hi guys,

please give some reviews to help me to choose the best suitable freestyle board.

Now I got a Nobile 666, 132 cm...it is a realy nice board! Nice pop, upwind...!!

I have been reading about CF Raptor and LULUZ...But I have never rode it.

If you have any other sugestion, it will be welcome!

Thanks!!

Love my Xenon Laluz. Nice pop and boosts with soft landings. I tried the Raptor Pro LTD but was underpowered so can't comment on it. Also demo North Team series board if you get a chance. It was a nice crisp board.

Clash makes an awesome freestyle kiteboard. I ride the 138 w/ boots. Really easy on the knees

When you say freestyle, do you mean out and out unhooked, powered kiting? What is your definition of freestyle?

I have the new 2014 laluz which I am riding for a couple of weeks before I comment, but I will make a comment when I know what exactly you intend to do on the board.

well

Just started to do some unhook maneuvers..
I come from a Nobile 666, what is a really good board...

So planing to get a board with a good Pop, and soft landing at the same time...
That is freestyle to me, unhook and play hight and hard...

Thanks for the help kiteboarders!

Have you switched to boots yet or are you still riding straps?

I bought a 2013 Nobile 2HD about 2 months ago after riding crazy fly raptors for the last 4 years, I just could not get used to it so have put it up for sale, I have just bought a 2013 crazyfly raptor limited carbon board, It is absolutely awesome, board.
