Advice for New Slingshot Dwarcraft 2021

Postby Chestnut » Thu Nov 12, 2020 1:08 pm

Hello all,

I need your advice on the size of the new SS Dwarfcraft 2021. I like the new 100cm and the 110cm. Which size would suit me best? My foil experience is a small year and I would like to buy the new 633 together with the new board.

Specs:

Lenght 189cm
Weight 86 kilo
Kite Xperience more than 20

I only foil when the wind is low and my TT is underpowered.

Whats the best choice to make? Thank you for your help in advance. :bye:

the smaller the better
i have a 37 inch board and it feels like i could go smaller
everyone who transitioned to a smaller board got used to it in no time

I loved riding the 100cm version and I think it would pair perfectly with 633 wing.
On the lightest end of the winds there comes time when you need to be able to ride you board on water before you can pop onto foil and fly - in this case a larger board would sound a proper choice. However it gotta be significantly larger board, something in surfboard/converter style and not 110/120cm Dwarcraft.

My point is you won’t benefit from 110/120 Dwarfcrafts and the 100 would serve you well.
