RE: [ksurf] Rhino 16 + 9.3 72KG 8knots-9m/s-Windforce 3
- I would be more inclined to the Underground 1.49TT or the Litewave pitbull,
as I am familiar with them.
We do not get a lot of the boards you can get over there.
The Underground 1.59 might be a better option as it will have decent bottom
end range, but if you can/prefer to sail well powered the 1.49 will suit the
conditions you speak about.
126 Beach St, Coogee, NSW, Australia 2034
Open 7 Days 9.30 - 5.30
Also at 386 Latrobe Terrace Geelong Vic

* First: thanks for ythe quick answer. I'm getting a lot of useful

* On a german forum "http://www.kitesurfing-kiel.de/" I asked the same
* question. A couple of advises came and told me to get a 150-160
* board and about 37-38 wide. So about the same.
* Because of these advices, I've allready decided to get a smaller
* board instead of an Olry 175.
* What specific board could you advice?
* I will be kitesurfing at sea a lot, so the board should also be
* excellent for smaller waves and still capable of going upwind
* because of strong currents.
* As I understand it's more about width and not length?
* What about a "Wipika Eclipse 159" or an "Underground TT 159". Also
* still to big? "LW 148 Pitbull" ?
