My 2012´s are beat up and need replacement, but I disliked the 2013 and 2014 editions.

Re: High wind surfboards

The best high wind surfboard is a small kite!!! If it gets too choppy however, anything not too wide and arround 6' is fine.

Re: Wax substitute

Does it leave an abrasive finish? Would it damage skin lycra or wetsuit if I rub against it?

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

I am looking to replace my 8m SS Rally for wave riding.
16 to 20 knot winds, 80kg rider, 6' strapless poly-surfboard, 3' to 10' peeling surf, side/off wind.
What size strutless kite would do the job?
How does its handling compare to the SS Rally?
