kitesurfed it at hurricane gulch later in the day. so far soooo good. did not ride it backwards. the brother (owner) comes to california next week. he'll do that as well as name the fish.
I have around 100 sessions on this board so far and the board kites effortlessly. The upwind performance is excellent. I kited yesterday with a 12.0 m2 kite in in 14 knots of wind and 4-6 ft surf in Lanikai. Pure Aloha!David Kaminskas
