I have a custom made one from Tarifa.

It's 145x44 I think and has a bit more rocker, has more channeling, and it's stiffer than most boards of these size.

I really like to train kitelooping in light winds paired with my Enduro 14m but past 15 knots turns into a really rough ride, time to change to Shinn Ronson 138, that's it.

Shinn Bronq Q XL is amazing in all the three sizes 146x46 148x47 and 150x50
Google it, some boards are still to be sold, Shinn doesn't renewed it!

If you are in Europe check https://saulcustom.com/
you can contact the guy and tell him exactly what you need, and get a carbon board with the size and properties that suit your style of riding.

Feedback time.

Went out today for the first time with the epic oxygen and EVO SLS 11m. 12-14 knots conditions, maybe even lighter.

SO FUN

I was basically the only one that could go upwind (except a lady with a 12m kite, i suspects she was also 30kg lighter..)

People of various weight with 14m and 17m kites and struggling big times.

overal seemed to be a perfect addition.

Happy to hear you liked the Oxygen! Like the Nobile XTR or the Bronq Q XL mentioned earlier in the thread, the wide but short boards I think are magic for having actual fun in light wind!
