Grigorib , I’m only quoting the weight from

POWERKITESHOP uk website !

Check out their site and wave and wakes

I have no interest in trying to Diss slingshot and was only trying to add information
Scales I used shown 5.4lbs / 2.5kg of Micro weight

I just ordered a Moses T38 LTD. Its bigger than the small Dwarfcraft, but smaller than the big one, and lighter than either of them. I like the fact that it has a bit more volume than the *really* small pocket boards because I've used my board as flotation during self rescues several times.

I did actually notice yours for sale in your profile, but shipping from England to the west coast of the US seemed prohibitive. I think I might have bought the last one currently available in the US. I don't know of any others in stock.

Moses web site has been showing out of stock for weeks now, (that's for the T38 carbon limited edition)
I met Jimmy from Bulgaria on the beach at Fuerteventura last week, he had number 74, If I remember correctly.

Mine is scheduled for delivery at home in Oregon tomorrow, but I won't actually get it for three weeks because I'm in Cabarete right now. But you've made me curious as to the serial number on mine. I wonder how many they made.

In the meantime my buddy is starting his little production of 36x16x1" 2.5kg boards. Paulownia, choice of fiber/carbon wrap, 8mm inserts.
If I'm lucky he'll have mine ready before we hit La Ventana next week.

So I had my opportunity to ride Micro. Very light and awesome board. Dwarfcraft but half as thin.
The tracks are a bit too forward - for 633 I had to move the mast all the way back and still would move 0.5” more back if I could. For 590 I kept it 20mm forward from most rear position.
I think the strap mount holes in the back are waste of material and are additional unnecessary complexity. For front strap I’d put only holes for hook mount, if any.

Great board, I hope there’ll be more of Micros and boards like Micro soon
