I'm primarily interested in delving deeper into the realm of lightwind frustration/bliss.
I currently have a Nobile 143x48 XTR and Litewave 153 WING.
Admittedly, there's some capability overlap between these two boards.
My kites are listed in my signature below.
I'm about 210 lbs, and ride mostly in the ocean in Florida.
Was seriously considering the versatile 2010 Ocean Rodeo Mako King
(while waiting for the August debut of the Aguera-designed Cabrinha raceboards.)
Then this evening, a fellow enthusiast told me about the Airush Sector.
As per this Airush Sector Product Page,
- the 60's dimensions are 172cm (5'8") x 60cm (23 1/2")
the 52's dimensions are 173cm (5'8") x 52cm (20 1/2")
I've also read that the 60 & 52 ship with different fin configurations.
Which is the case?
I've also read some early concerns about QC regarding the fin boxes.
Has this been addressed by Airush as of yet?
The 52 is supposed to be faster and slightly more maneuverable
The 60 is supposed to have a little better low-end and more immediate planing.
Need to hear from those who have tried both back to back.
Anyone know what Airush was 'going for' when they decided to use that
grinder-scuffed black and white finish on the Sector?
It got me thinking about anti-shark graphic efforts such as this one.
