Looking to buy my first bi-directional twin tip board. If you have experience with the Wipika Olry, Naish's new bi-dir. t.tip, Jimmy Lewis, Roberto Ricci's or others, please post reply describing performance, durability, etc. Here on Kauai, Hawaii, the Olry seems to be getting popular in this style board. However, I've heard reports of suspect durability. Please respond if you have info on this type of board. Mahalo!

HI,

I ride a Undergorund Lunch Tray 151.
With this board you just go for the first time and it runs great. Good upwind, good edging, good jumping. This board is for riders wanting to go with a bi for the first time, but already know what it means to go overpowered. It is like a wakeboard but has footstraps. Therefore you need more power than a board longer and bigger.
But there are many other boards out there which are great too. The F-One is a good board and at the moment it is quiet cheap if you can get a 2001 model.

Hope that helps. :wink:
