New kiteboard

Postby Derek Mczee » Thu Mar 06, 2014 1:36 pm

I've decided to replace my old board to the new one. I liked this board - here, I think to use it with boots. I'll be glad to hear any experience on this board.

2014 X-series is my first board that I use with boots ... also I have 2013 that use with straps in same size ... 134x41 ... I am about 190lbs and next time I will go up in board size dedicated for boots ... but its nice to see difference when riding side to side ... With boots I can hold way more power and X give me explosive pop to help get some extra air ...

If you like freestyle and wakestyle also, you will appreciate X compatibility with wake bindings, since this union turns X board in the direction of wakestyle.

Reliable board!

A couple years old X-series used with bindings at Indoor Wakeboard Academy Kipsala, Latvia.

X-series is a great freestyle board, which includes all the necessary freestyle features.
At times when I intend to do kiteloops, and the weather is favorable for it, I ride also another ABoards model - W-series because its rocker with a bottom shape ensures the soft landings, that is good for me since I had a knee injury.

Thanks guys for sharing your experience! I understand that the board works great in a freestyle, but what is the board strength and durability? I have an aggressive riding style, also in my homespot are rocky places.
