So I pretty much only snowkite and have a 10 year old anti-g kiteboard 130x39 that I use on water when traveling a few times a year, the bindings on it are wearing out and looking at boards lately, it seems like the trend has gone towards bigger boards? I weigh around 185 and have never had any problems riding in super light wind conditions as I travel with a 9m, 14m, 20m race foil quiver.
Anyways, wondering if all the new features on kiteboards (mainly the double concave channels) make a significant difference? Using race kites i've never had any problems rocketing upwind, but something that smooths out the chop a bit when going really fast would be nice. Was debating between a NHP carbon or CF Raptor LTD carbon, both seem to get good reviews. Anyone have any experience with these boards? It looks like I would have to size up for both, not sure which size to go with on the raptor, 132 or 136, are there any disadvantages to riding a larger board when you're used to a small one with big kites?
