Best small wave kitesurfboard

Postby Kitemanmuc » Fri Jan 10, 2020 4:19 am

Looking for a really good board that works well in small 3-5 footers and white wash. Classic florida days. What are some of the best options. Preferably not from a larger brand like Cab, Slingshot. Maybe FireWire Evo or FCD Blunt, any recommendations?

Appletree Klokhouse Noseless. Great in small surf, pretty good freestyle board as well.
