I rode the 16 One for the first time today in very marginal conditons - here is the graph:
I was riding from around 3:30 until 4:30. I weigh 150 lbs and was on the Mako board. Only one other rider was staying upwind - he has about 40lbs on me but was riding a 26m Gaastra with a 6’2 x 20” wide directional. The 16 One feels much the like the 12 One but with a lot more low end power. It is incredibly smooth, and turns very well - bar pressure did not seem to be any more than with the 12 One. It allowed me to ride a small kiteboard in conditions where I normally would have had to use a big floaty surfboard.
