Hi Felix et. al. ,
I am looking for a board with very good upwind ability in marginal wind conditions. My new home spot has mostly side-onshore wind (force 3-4) and fairly big and powerful (over head high) groundswell. The beach is small and I need to get upwind before I hit the rocks. I am a competent kiter in waves and surf a lot (90kg / 183cm). My old sponsor does not have the right board for the new conditions. What Firewire model would you recommend to test? I am using C-Kites in 10-9-7 on short lines.

Wanted: Board with amazing upwind ability in ligthish wind and big wavesHi,
My home spot is a tricky one: light, cross-onshore thermal winds (enough for a 10m C-kite but I prefer a 7 on short lines); small beach and usually overhead-high, powerful groundswell waves. I used to compete wavekiting in England but have not nailed the right board for my new home spot in Portugal yet. I likle the upwind ability of of Quad but on the wave I prefer a Thruster anytime. Do you have silver bullet in your board line up I should try? I weight 90kg on 183cm.
