Duotone Jaime sizing for a 72kg rider

Postby dcnoo » Mon Jan 13, 2020 7:11 am

I am 72kg with gear, an intermediate rider learning on-hook tricks. Usually ride a 8m or 10m kite under 15-30knots. Stay at home when it's below 15knot. No plan to ride in boots.

Currently riding an airush vox 135 which is my first board (40cm wide on paper but measured 39.5). I struggle a lot on low end.

I am about to buy a 2019 Jaime but my weight is at the border between 133 and 136. Any suggestion?

For freestyle you can probably get away with a largish board since you don't need to max out power like with big air (you can even consider going larger then 136).
Great thing with a larger board is you can go with a kite with less power and therefor crashes will be less painful.

136x41 is such a nice size. I have it in 139x42 with around 78-82 kg.

Iva a Textreme Jamie 2018 in 136 at 80kgs...Find that size nice for my weight..I tried the 139 and liked that too just a little to big to through around...If I were u go with the 136 over the 133.

Definitely go with the 136. The new 2019 /20 Jaime's are really light and agile and bigger boards feel smaller.

What size do you recommend for 230lb rider? I know, a barge!
