I got a spacecraft as my first board not long ago for roughly that price. I can just barely ride upwind but both directions feel about the same, only a little easier to ride with the nose forward.

It looks cool and I like it more than the big board they had us on at lessons so I'm pretty happy overall. I dream of popping to toeside and doing a big carve but that's still out of reach for me.
Oh I would say that they are not beginner boards as they run nicely if you are well powered. You should have gone with a big board as a beginner as you will progress faster without worrying about going upwind. Well now you have to work it out ;-)

Hi I had a LF Lunar Lander, very similar in terms of performances to the Spacecraft only a bit less grippy. Overall It is a super versatile and fun board but not ideal for big air and airstyle. Very smooth to ride I love It in choppy water and mushy waves. Here's a short video. I hope to try the new Slingshot Super Natural soon.



Cheers

Carlo

the Spacecraft reminds me off the new 2021 Slingshot board! Super Natural V1

Loved the LF LFX and Legacy, so Bought a Spacecraft this spring for 150$, It became my Go to board after riding it the first time. Set it up like my directional Powder snowboard, back foot at 0deg and front foot at 20deg, both feet set back. Its was so sweet!, I jump L hand forward, so the board gives the Pop of a small board, the V also helps the board dig in for that pop too. Riding toe side in a wave is so sweet the damn thing acts like a surfboard and cuts up a wave. The board upwinds easy toeside, which most directional don't, rides upwind heel side good, but the interesting thing is the board rips upwind heel side riding the Wrong way go figure. So I fell in love with the Spacecraft, so bought a Moon Patrol which is almost as good all around but, better in surf the moon patrol is butter, rides right over white wash, cuts and rides like a surfboard.

Thx Bay Surfer can't wait to try it. What do you find are the best fin sizes to use on it

Wait this just sounds objectively good - what would I gain by switching to a more traditional beginner board? I think the board is good but I really have no comparison aside from a few tries on my surfboard where it was easier to angle upwind.

Not sure what specifically you are asking. What is your beginner board? A TT or surf board? Are you looking for a board riding more powered in waves? I only use it in waves as I have a regular small TT for the everyday - no wave spot.

As a beginner my goal is mostly to stay upwind. I sort of can, but if I botch a few transitions or fail to relaunch my kite fast it's a guaranteed walk up the beach.

Could it be because of the spacecraft?
