Great boosting twin tip for 110kgs & 202cm?

Postby Guttorm » Sun Jul 07, 2019 9:45 pm

It is hard to find a great boosting and playfull board to fit my sice, and to try them before buying them is not possible here in Norway. I have a light wind board + a CF Raptor Pro 137 x 43, I like it, but it is to smal for me for boosting in less than full power conditions. Any tips would be really helpfull.

Alright whenever I can't play something good on my guitar I want to buy a new one and I think, for some reason, this might be the case for you and the board right now. Looks like a good lightwind board you have and then you have a 43 board for everything else. After looking at your kites maybe the go would be to go down to 100kg or work on technique? (Which is pretty much the equivalent of just practice more on my guitar for me)

Not sure how light wind we are talking but maybe you want to sell the 17 and 19m and get a soul in 15m? I saw a guy boost and still be able to loop the 15m soul recently, not sure about the bigger sizes. Other people might have a better idea about that.

190cm*97kg here .
Get an F-ONE Trax in 140*45 Size , best "big guys" TT i've ever tried and owned , riding exclusively directionals for years this board brings me back my appeal for TT boosting and carving days ... asymm fins and inverted rails makes this board feels like a directional ,tracking and feeling locked in from the tips ...not overly canting for going upwind and breaking loose when centering your weight for transitions...it just have this perfection feeling if you know what i mean ..
Mine is glass construction , there's a carbón model for more "ommmmphh!!" out of your jumps... :D

I am 110kg, I use an Axis LTD 138/41.5.

It's my only main board, don't use anything else.

For your weight, you need something stiff. From our range, the XCaliber Carbon 138 or 141 would be your best bet. Stiff, square, and amazing edge pop and release.

1) if anything is limiting your boosting in less than full power conditions - it is THE CONDITIONS!!! If there's not enough wind for you to boost - no board will change that. Bigger kite perhaps - but even then there are limits to laws of physics.

If there's anything worse than not being able to boost - it's to boost, but with no hold. Pointless.

2)137 is in fact on a short side for 110kgs, I'd be tempted to suggest something in 142-145 region, but don't go too crazy on the width - wide boards in choppy conditions tend to kill ankles quickly. 42cm tops with medium/medium-soft flex.

Cheers.
