Re: [ksurf] F One directional 195cm
- My ahd's 2meter board doesn't have significant sharp rails but it carves
like h. due too it's shape and bottom concave. don't look at your weight but
look (visualize/ask) if & when your kite can get your board into planing.
when you gain skill you can plane more quickly and any board designed for
kiting should work. you could even ride a 160 directional, or a 125 wakie if
your kitepower is enough so base yourself on the power of the kite you own /
want to buy and if you want kiteboarding, kitesurfing or both.
In short, a wakestyle kiteboard should need rails, a directional doesn't
necessary. directionals carve or turn by using the fins, wakestylers use
their rail. you need kite power to plane / float and some skill for bottom
