what board 'quivers' do people have

Postby supachip1 » Tue Sep 28, 2021 3:23 am

no idea what term you'd use for having multiple boards but what are the difference in sizes for those that have more than 1?

i have 136 and 144, i was thinking about adding a 130 or 132

Im 182 and 74 kilo's

TT 136x41 - Ventum Joyrider
Kite wave board 5'10 - liquid force slice
Foil board 51" - f-one ts51
Old twintip-turned-wakeskate (Strapless) 134x41

Don't really see the point in having more than one twintip. 🤷🏼‍♂️ unless maybe it's a door for super light wind or that cool mutant from the post above (nice board!). The difference feels so marginal.

136 x 42.5 - Naish Monarch (for my GF)
138 x 42 - Naish Monarch (mine)
144 x 44 - Airush switch (lightwind for bot of us)
5'4" strapless Airush slayer v2
5'2" hydrofoil

To be fair 99% of the time for TT we use the 138 or 144 depending on the conditions, had a 133x40 Radical 6 for my gf, but we exchanged it for the 136 Monarch, as ther was never enough wind for her to use the small board.

Best Spin 2016, 139cm. Probably tad small by today's standards for my size (189cm/93kg), but in 2016 that what my long kiting friends were recommending. Maybe I change it next year

One twintip Jaime textreme with straps best twintip ever made 1 custom made surfboard 1 hydrofoil 1 mountain board 1 ice board 1 long skiis 1 short skiis 1 modified snowboard to use on ice 1 regular snowboard 1 homemade wooden twintip with boots. I need to buy one more twintip that I can use only with boots as my diy board is too heavy.

The thing about boards is that they don't age as quick as kites so there's no problem holding a board you only ride twice a year.
