The grom is a small board, no question.
A buddy rides one with his 15M light wind Rise. Funny to see that combination, but I’ve seen him hold down that 15M when I’m on a 10M Bronco (yes I still like an old C kite sometimes). He can hold down the overpowered-15M because the Grom gives him an “edge” (pun intended).
My 150xTHIRTY FOUR is a better all around board for me because it gives the kite both ends of the wind range. However….
.....the grom is light as a feather and a very sweet edge to play with. I’m in Love!! Some compromise is necessary when you’re in love, no?
