I use a Spleen Sesssion 141x42. It is a great light wind board but is very light and can be used for freestyle tricks.

Spleene Session 141 or the Spleene Rip Plus.

Both are very light.

The Session is flatter and will give you more speed.

Both have flexible tips that will give the boards more bite when they land.
What happens is the tips flex and flare ot the fins a bit. The flared out fins make the board stick to the water more. However when you pop the board the tips don't flex enough to make the board stick. Also the flare out thing happens more when you land on the rear tips with no edging.

Cheers

Fred

Interesting observation - so the tips actual go convex and the fins are no longer parallel (in the vertical axis)?

Jimmy Lewis flight deck is fairly new. I have not tried it out yet, but seems to have same characteristics of the slingshot glide.
