I have used this board for most of this season when the conditions are small, onshore and with kites sizes 12m-6m.
I mainly rode the 5'9 and 5'4 which have been epic for strapless airs and dinking around when its not perfect down the line wave conditions. The wider tail block and slightly wider outline allow for lighter wind riding and every session is a blast.
A perfect board for strapless beginners and for people whose predominant conditions are onshore and mushy waves. Oh yeah and these things are totally bomb proof! I have landed very flat and there is not one dent on the boards evn after numerous sessions. Truly a durable little stick!! KAPOW.REAL Pro Tip:- Pop a set of slightly larger fins in this board if you plan to take on larger conditions.
