The last lightwind TT I had was a Shinn King Gee (about 10 years ago?) which worked pretty well. A board I've never tried but looks like a nice lightwind TT is the Ozone Infinity V2 144x47.

Naish S25 Hero 145 ! Im 240lbs and I can ride it and jump in 13mph. Even when it pics up into the 20s its still good for jumping. And its not expensive !

any light board above 142 with small rocker - flatter board is better for LW

The Shinn King Gee or superking is fantastic. I have a 146 and it rides just as smooth as my 136 freestyle board. It's ridiculous how fun it is for a big board.

Epic
Oxygen
135 long
47 wide
+1.

If you want a nimble light wind board that whips to toe side and back with far greater ease than traditional light wind doors, try the Epic Oxygen. Its width will get you going in super light winds, but your style won't be hampered by its 135 length. :thumb:
thanks for the interesting info!

i have narrowed it down to 2 options (trying to stay below 600 euro):

https://www.epickiteskiteboarding.com/g ... -v3-board/

was wondering what is the wind range you use the oxygen board with? and with which kite?
