What we like:
LF made the Space Craft the more traditional of their Hippy Stick line. It still has the buttery flex and beveled rail like the Moon Patrol that make this board ride smooth through chop, but they changed the outline and the rock to make it feel a little more traditional. You If you close your eyes you will not be able to tell if you are riding this forward or backwards.
Having the surfboard outline makes carving turns on the Space Craft unbelievable. It sets into a turn and holds until you come out of the turn.
The added flex to the Space Craft make it really fun in all conditions. It is not mushy by any means, just easy on the knees.
This board is black and black boards are hard to find unless you are in tropical waters. It is not the end of the world but they could have made it any other color than black.
A couple riders have been riding this board finless with boots in the REAL Slider Park and owning it. The flexy nose makes press style tricks super fun.
There is a lot of confusion between what one is better, the Moon Patrol or the Space Craft. Both are awesome but just a little different. We feel that the Moon Patrol is more surf orientated due to the fuller more rockered out nose. Get the Moon if you know you will be riding this in the surf and get the Space Craft if you are looking for a twin tip with a twist.
Why you want the Space Craft:
This board is a blast to ride. If you are going to be carving turns in flat or open water, then this board is surely one to consider.
The Space Craft is a twin tip with a twist. Designed for open waters and lake or river swells, the Space Craft will keep you stoked on the water.
Includes board & fins.
Liquid Force's Description:
Feeling like you lack some direction in your kiteboarding? Looking to blast into outer orbit and land like a floating feather? The Space Craft will cover all these needs and then some! Utilizing T.F.R.(Tips, Front, Rear) technology that
allows for easy riding both nose and tail forward, the added slight offset back from center outline and asymmetrical rocker creates a chop soaking, big boosting, smooth landing experience that will change your view of riding a multi
directional board forever. Drawing design direction from past mutant folklore, modern surf shapes, and directional snowboards, the Space Craft offers hard carving action that is an easy cross over from your standard twin. Like its larger brother the Moon Patrol, the Space Craft comes with 6 fins; 4 x 4cm and 2 x 5cm, to adjust the ride the conditions or preference of feel.
