[ksurf] Re: board advice.
- Hello Mike,
Big wind for that size sail!
About board size, you are absolutly right. My world since I am doing
kitesurfing is "Smaller is Better" only for kitesurfing :0)

"I am looking forward to try these theories out today in 40 - 60 km wind
(25 - 37 mph) ::::::))))))))) "
I went out today in that same wind using 7.2 wave, 60m lines, 23 gusting to
30kts. Yes it was fun! at times I was flying from wave top to wave top.
The lesson for today was the Fone230 is too much board in high wind.
I understand the difference that a smaller board will allow me to sink
deeper and edge easier, and that a smaller board will allow me to knife thru
the chop easier........but what other characteristics should I be looking
for a high wind board??? (I did not come from a windsurfing background)
For example I hear talk about speed boards, wave boards, directional boards.
Thanks in advance,
