ya its better having susi downwind. Nicer view :)
We were riding in the north part of Antigua. There are some small islands that you can cruise around.
I'd say that the transport board isn't really a board you'd want to take in the waves but it's fun for exactly what we did in this video. If you are into cruising long distances and want a comfortable ride.
The fins are about 8" long

I am amazed how shallow the water was that you were kiting over with 8" fins! I would have hit a rock or coral for sure! I'd like to add a transport type board to my little "fleet" this year.

ya there were definitely spots that you had to be careful you didn't hit reef!!

I'd say a cruising board is a good board to have for the quiver! :)

Excellent shooting and editing on the cruising video Dre! It was also good to take another look at Antigua if only in video. It is a scenic place to kite and hang out. I only tried to Transport for a short time but liked it. The winds were lightening up but riding upwind wasn't a problem on it unlike with the tt's.
