  • board for a heavyweight

    Trying to find a board to replace my Naish Skater 5'9 and want to go to one of the Firewire kite construction boards - only thing is I'm 100-105kg and 6'3, can anyone recommend the best board to be looking at as an all rounder in onshore/cross-on slop (WA metro coastline) from 15-30 knots? I've found the skater has been a bit small to keep me going in the lulls.

    I've been looking at the 5'10 hellfire and the 6'0 Quadra 5 so far.

    Cheers, Jon

    The 5'10" Hellfire in a kiteboard build would be perfect. It get's up and planes really quickly and keeps you moving through the mushy sections. But still performs exceptionally well. We have a lot of folks out there really excited about the Hellfire models. Highly recommended!

      Thanks Brian - picking one up on Monday, I'll run it as a quad for now and see if I can't justify a KP1 for big days too...
