Hey, just wonder what the prevailing wisdom/experience is on the board that you ride. That is, does the board contribute much joy/value to the kite ride.
I use a pretty low end twintip and a floaty surfboard. I have a lot of fun on these. I now seem to have a bug about newer boards, in particular a mako, and possibly a thinner, lower volume, surfboard. Am I wasting precious resources if I start sniffing around these things?
I am a beginner, but going lots and improving. When I think of other activities, sometimes newer gear adds to the fun, and with other stuff, newer/more expensive gear doesn’t give much bang for the buck.
What do you think about boards? Mostly I am in flat water/chop/wind swell, but will do trips to the coast for waves.
Thanks a lot.
