Any serious, recent design, racing directional performs better in the lightest winds than any of the boards mentioned above.

Where's the Jimmy Lewis Flightdeck??? I love that ride and it works when things pick up a bit too. Should be on the list for sure, and it gets my vote all the way.

Airush Sector 60 :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Easy to learn (unlike race boards), super friendly, just pure fun. Better than any LW TT, can be jumped easy (unlike race boards). To achieve ultra light wind performance from the race board takes bit of skills, especially in puffy conditions, Sector is much simpler. However in those conditions Sector will struggle to go upwind enough compare to race board.
60 is the most versatile size that covers light wind.

YOU ALL ARE MISSING OUT ON THE ULTIMATE LITEWIND SESH SAVER.

LITEWAVE WING 153 X 46

Great upwind, handles the small waves, and jumps.
