Re: Directional with straps for small Waves / Not for lightwind, not for freestyle

Hi Simon, Great choice for a board ! you could look for a 5'2. 5'4. or possibly a 5'6 in a Mitu. not sure if there are hull differences in the three construction types, there are certainly differences in hull shapes year to year, but all work well. don't worry too much about all this 'getting upwind...

Re: What size directional board?

Sorry Chris ! I misread your 'OP' , I presumed you were having trouble turning, carving your board. As Slappysan said, for learning foot switches during a gybe, a wider board will certainly help , a bigger platform to work with.

Re: What size directional board?

Hi Chris, At your height and weight, I think the 5'10 Mitu, is the right size for you, although you could easily ride a 5'8 Mitu. I weight 75kg, 5'9...and use a 5'8 Mitu, which surfs and carves really well, although I am going down in size to a 5'4 Mitu, as I think it will be more "fun", but will pr...

Re: Mitu Pro Flex 2021 Size Issue. ;)

Hi Dave, I would suggest the 5'8 or 5'10, I am 75 kg, and 5'9 tall, and have used the Mitu 5'8 for the last five years. It has probably been too large for me, so am switching down to a 5'4. So from that I would suggest the 5'8 if you want to go 'small'.... but more practical might be the 5'10 especi...

Re: Question regarding second-hand bought Naish Pivot

I have a 2020 9m PIVOT which 'had' exactly the same problem, spoke to the Naish dealer, and the opinion was Naish would see it as general wear, and certainly not replace the kite. I had NOT ever drag launched the kite, so I suspected a bad batch of rubberised buffers, my 12m and 7m do not have this ...

Re: Mitu Pro Carbon vs. BWS Stallion

I have the 2018 Mitu Pro Carbon 5'8, and ride in similar conditions, using 7-9-12m Pivots. 165 lbs. It's the best board I have owned, (I also had the 2017 model) , bearing in mind the 5'8 is probably a little large for me, it "surfs" like a surfboard! is very fast (helped by the stiffness ?) and the...

Re: GKA freestyle event, Commentary.

Good point about Joe doing the commentary without a partner, so needs to fill the dead air. But the commentary does sometimes sound the equivalent of (corny) Rock used to liven up a Snooker match.

It's a hard job, I certainly couldn't do it. but sometimes less is more ?
