- I see a lot of posts on this group lately regarding wider boards.
Now everyone is saying that they are the latest and greatest.
Now please someone correct me if I am wrong, but is a normal
wakeboard not just this..... Looking at wake boards and comparing
them to a kitewakeboard (either the Naish or Liquidforce) the
kiteboard looks a lot like a long(ish) narrow wakeboard.
Now I have seen Hyperlite wakeboards with the same length as say the
Naish wake but only wider.... it is worth noting that they are about
half the price of a kite wakeboard.
Now everyone is saying "narrow is out - the latest for 2002 is wider
but still short". To me that translates to "You know those guys
behind the boats just might be onto something"
So then should I fork out double the amount of money just because a
kiteboarding pro is riding this board or should I save the money and
go for a porduction wakeboard??
- I have 141 pickle fork and a 2002 Airrush wake but my fave board is a
$100 wake its 140 long 41cm wide and has loads of rocker. It feels
super stable jumps realy well the only problem is it 3 times a heavy.
Up wind through chop is no problem.
