To add to the questions, if not answers:
Anyone try MR or AMT twin fin sets, plus or minus the small trailer, for kiting?
Anyone run future controller front fins (good for huge lift to get you upwind in light wind) with a single rear fin?
I often ride a paipo with small keels, love the combination of drive and easy sliding once you break the keels free.
Also ride an old jimmy lewis thruster board, but without the trailer...
I recently got a round tail fish hybrid I have run with controllers, it's nice upwind but but I'd like a little looser feel on the wave.
