Naish Floater 140 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:Naish Floater 140 (2006) - Programmed for waves, the Floater carves beautifully from rail to rail. Perhaps a bit more length would keep the front fins from catching quite so much, but this really wasn't a huge pr...

Brunotti Double-O-Six 135 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:Strictly speaking this board isn't a twin-tip, it's more of a full-on surf-kite shape. The difference in opinions from the testers shows how very specialist this board is, and if you often kite in huge ballistic ...

Airush Hammer 137 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:As close to a wave-riding twin-tip as you can get. A very accomplished shape, making for a comfortable ride, excellent grip and even drive in the bottom-turns. Good power-control in gusts, quick to get going at t...

North Converter 136 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:In spite of some inventive fin design, the North Converter seemed a bit lost in the wave test we placed it in. Although it was a very capable twin-tip, it just didn't have enough wave characteristics to keep the ...

Nobile 555 135 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARYIt's hard to criticise this board. Perhaps not the quickest board to plane, but it's certainly not sluggish. Everything else about it just works and all types of riders will enjoy it.MANUFACTURER'S HYPE:The 555 ra...

Fanatic McQueen 133 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARYThis board was noticeably smaller than some of the other boards, and as a result didn't get going as quickly in the lighter winds. It is stiff which means that lighter riders will have no problem on this in light ...

RRD Lite Air 135 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARYAgain RRD have equipped their board with the best set of pads and straps for amazing comfort and a locked-in feeling. Unfortunately this board was let down by an inability to get up and going in light winds, makin...

Caution Hustla 135 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARYGood, solid performer that an experienced rider would be comfortable performing on in light wind; a heavier or beginner rider could employ it as their only board. The only real downside we found was that a light r...

Slingshot Glide 149 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARYBit different this one: purely for lightwind fun. For anything serious you need just a bit more grip. This is for getting out in the summer winds and cruising up and down and spinning around. We felt some concave ...

Airush Exile 135 (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY A real all-rounder in this category. An advanced rider would love it in the light wind, or a heavier rider would be better off with this rather than a narrower shape. Beginners will save a lot of time and will fi...
