I must say, till now this is my absolute favourite spray picture of all times :thumb:
Posted by "kitesurfingcumbuco".

Click on the picture, and see it in "close up" - a very clear and perfect shot :P

With a TT, so the spray is even better and more clean than a waveboard - but it is a REALLY good shot IMO - maybe the very best I've seen 8)
(and I've seen LOTS !!!)

Kindly, Peter Frank

Above pictures from shogun illustrates a few things very precise IMO :

A twintip has a more clean spray.

A twintip can spray much better in a "non breaking" wave.

A waveboard has better grip/more fun in whitewater.

A waveboard can spray seriously when hit exactly right on the clean breaking face
