Out of curiosity what specifically makes you say this? At my weight of 68kg, trying to ride with 12 and 14 metre kites in 8-12 kts of wind will it do the job? Also, with t being carbon is it very stiff or does it have reasonable flex? Also what about progressing to freestyle (or as much freestyle as you can do in 12 kts anyway). And finally how is it in chop and getting out over 0.5-1.0m waves?!
The Shinnster is a great board. The low end is on par with door-style TTs but it is much more fun to ride IMO. Very easy way to learn strapless directional riding. Boards of this style of construction(no volume) are much easier to water start also.ConcreteFloater wrote: ↑Wed Apr 14, 2021 1:15 pmOkay, now for a potentially silly idea, and based on the Alaia suggestions...
What about a Shinnster?!
Looks like it could have a sense of my skating days and have a sense of 'snowboarding on powder' about it. Would that make a good LW board? Is the learning curve for a beginner a bit steep to go strapless?

Agreed. Traditional surfboards can't compete when it gets choppy, thin rail boards slice through chop with ease.
