Re: F-One Mitu or Shadow?

But I notice in your profile you have a "Slice", so maybe that works on the average play around days, and the Shadow for the smoothed out perfect conditions? Yeah, that's a thought I also have, so that I don't have 2 boards that overlap too much... Although I'm curious how the Shadow is in rough ch...

Re: F-One Mitu or Shadow?

I prefer strapless in general, but when I have been in Cape Town with bigger waves, I feel more secure with straps.

F-One Mitu or Shadow?

I just sold my 5'10 Mitu from 2014. I am 72kg, and as I became a bit more experienced, I felt the board became to big. I would like to replace it, so I am looking into a new Mitu or the Shadow. I kitesurf mostly in smallish-medium waves in Holland, then secondly on holidays in places like Cape Town,...

Icaraizinho or Prea?

We have 2 weeks in late November and we're looking for a nice kite holiday spot with both flat water and waves.

Re: f-one mitu size

Thanks for the tip. In hadn't considered the Signature, so I'll wait a few months until the new mitu is out, then check them out.

f-one mitu size

I am 178cm/72kg, and I have the first 5'10" f-one mitu model. I also have a 5'1" slice convertible, and I'm exploring the differences. The slice is incredibly responsive and fun, and also a bit skittish when it picks up speed, and I like that I can also learn foil with it. The old mitu feels a bit l...

Re: Fone convertible drag?

Do you mean water starts? Or touchdowns? It was a comment I heard from a shop, that the round rails on the convertible boards are more difficult to take off from water to foil. I'm a bit surprised, the shops I have spoken with so far basically say they don't like the convertible boards, that they a...

Re: Fone convertible drag?

Yes @norcom, I've heard good things about the slingshot converter also... Do you sense that the size and rails of the board make the lift onto the foil more difficult?

Re: Fone convertible drag?

Thanks for your input, this is the shape of the board and foil box that I'm considering. I'm not sure if this is the kind of box that drags more than less.
