What we like:
The Orbit comes in two sizes which are big and bigger. When there is light wind present, you need a big board. We find that if you are under 170 lbs. you can get away with the 152cm and over 170 lbs you should go for the big daddy 162cm.
This board can double as your first board to learn on. It is big, wide and stable so it is really easy for your first rides. As you get better it works awesome as a lightwind board for the lightest of days.
The center heel side fin give you a lot more traction for your first rides. It will also help you go upwind much more efficiently. Once you can ride upwind really well, you can take out this center fin for faster speeds.
Why you want the Naish Orbit:
No one likes light wind, but the Naish Orbit will have you on the water in next to nothing.
The Orbit is designed with a large surface area and low rocker for early planing and freeride fun in lightwind conditions.
Its surface area, flat rocker, double concave bottom shaping and responsive flex provide easy planing, a smooth ride, superior edging and soft landings. Its outline is designed to provide a playful and forgiving ride—even when small chop starts to develop. It also features an angled heel-side center fin for strong upwind performance while still maintaining a playful ride.
