Just tried finless for nose slide, and it works on and edge with channel but when landing trick with board flat it's pretty unstable. If it's shallow some 30 to 45mm on a board with rocker should be fine.
A bit of rocker in my new board definitely improved my pop.
As far as size my flattish 135cm fone trax almost compare to 138cm nobile fifty/50 with medium to high rocker. actually the 135 is still faster. So make sure you size up if you increase rocker.
Anyway if you want more pop some medium to high rocker will definitely show some improvement.
Also kite type definitely makes a difference, we often talk about slack for unhooking on C kite, but the way the power builds up when you load your edge, improves your pop significantly, it's hard to explain but when you head downing it slack you unhook, when you load edge power builds up slowly until you pop and release. I guess that's the "pop" of the kite. Same thing when you send it for boosting by the way.
i feel that on my bandit as soon as I get on the edge it starts to pull and don't really feel the power building up, especially when wind is medium to high range. It's more on off.
Just landed my first raley to blind this week in OBX, so stoked

Screw the board, you need one of these
Oh I get it -- everyone at your beach thinks you're a swell guy cos you're too much of a little pussy to mouth off to people's faces like you do in here.
No I'm very blunt with everyone on the beach too, but the difference between them and people on this board is that they know what's behind it. When I am blunt with people on here, they think I'm a hater, but there is a reason I am so blunt, and that is so they will get their act together and learn something. I am doing this for their own good.
And I know that treadmill comment must have ruffled your feathers
Lol you are definitely blunt, I hope they appreciate your support and get motivated loosing some weight
I don't think you need a treadmill, maybe kiting in 40F to 70F with 2 to 3 hours session should be good enough, often find myself grabbing big breakfast, skipping lunch for session and too tired to grab a full dinner on good days, definitely get bigger calorie deficiency on those days than treadmill.
In most case it's easier to loose weight avoiding gym and just improving food and drinking habit...
