anti-slip versus pad on a foilboard

Hi Guys,
Getting a new board soon so what are pro's and con's on using a pad vs anti-slip on a foil board?

thanks

zanzibar Paje, amazing kiting, african vibe

Re: Naish Slash 2017

Hi Sandman, We talk a few weeks ago, I am selling my 10m Slash and live in "Baaltje" :-) I use slash 6/8/10 and have no problem using a 2016 Naish bar. My findings is that you need to trim the kite "early" to avoid back stalling. I can also advise you to go back to the shop where you bought it so th...

Sri Lanka Bentota any good?

Any kite gear for rent over there?

Thanks
