my wife got to try her Nomad Carbon -Wave in sunny Brasil/Taiba.
She is so happy with it, the board is amazing!!!
It goes up wind without any effort, super smooth ride, great to play on in small waves.
She said its like riding on air...

Highly recommending it!

ps: the custom build process was very professional as well.

Liquid Force LFX, bullet proof, good flex, POP, enough rocker for waves. Other Wood composite boards I've made, But I tended to break the really good ones.

Nobile fifty /50, Ist edition,
From 6 years back? Maybe 7 years?
So good I bought another 1st edition as the 2nd edition was softer and slower,
Still have both Ist editions.
And tried many boards since, none compare with the all round ease of the fifty/50,
blasts through rough seas at top speed that makes you go yeeeeharrr!
Never catching an edge ever, jumps like a mad thing, so smooth, so easy, so why can't all boards be as good.
See one buy it!
Gold!

I treated myself to a Crazyfly Raptor Ltd Neon on the back of comments in this post.

I must say, the quality of construction is like nothing I've ever seen on a kiteboard before - it is AMAZING!! I feel like I should have it hanging on the wall in a posh frame, or in pride of place on the mantelpiece.

On the water it's just brilliant, and i can really feel the weight difference between this and a 'normal' board - absolutely loving it. It's waaaaaay better than any TT I ever owned (I've had boards from nearly every manufacturer over the years!). Super super happy with it.

AND - to cap it all off, the customer service I've received from Crazyfly has been A1. Really impressed. I finally have a TT I'm 100% content with!

(although I still prefer Naish Apex straps over the Hexa's - I do miss my comfy slippers).
