Just like that, without even knowing what kind of board he is looking for...
'she' is looking for... I'm a strapless girl :)

Well he is right, the Vanguard or the Vader won't let you down :thumb:

If you is new to strapless, the vanguard probably would be a better choice. The Vader is a bit more technical, less stable and all over quicker board.

Really? I was out with the Ozu guy last night as asked him what he stocked but he never said Firewire - maybe he didn't expect me to mean strapless boards...

Thing is, if you are new to strapless and not tested a few boards, you are not going to know what's good or not. The Evo, Vader and vanguard are not going to be more difficult than any other board if that's your main concern.

Problem with Kiel kitespot is you can't see which construction the boards are.

I'm with you on trying first. I refused to buy a TT until I got to test it. Just ordered it after 2 separate 1hr test sessions. I'd love to try those boards to see how my copy compares.

If you can get an Evo, I'd try that.
I ride an Evo copy I made and it's way better than anything I've ridden. I'm 175cm 80 kg.this ones 4-10 x 18,75 plenty big.

:thumb: Completely true, just make sure the board you choose was designed for your intended program within the kind of surfboard types available. For instance, a flat rocker board is going to behave differently from one with a flat rocker just like a surfboard designed for true waves wont behave the same way as one intended for light wind planning etc. Doesn't mean either is best or worst.
BTW Although Strapless is the way to go but any board can be used without straps. Strapless specific board is just marketing unless off course it has no inserts .
