Airush Converse 6' 0" (2007)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:
The consensus from the testers is that if you've got any experience riding directionals, either from kiting or windsurfing, then this kiteboard would be great for you. Immediately fun and rewarding, 6'0' seems to be a friendly length of board. Of course, the wooden finish is sublime, but does make it a little more expensive than the regular finish.
MANUFACTURER'S HYPE:
Same convertible idea as for the 6'2', but this time for the 6'0'. We tried the wooden one from a different shaper, designed for lighter riders in higher wind conditions.
TEST TEAM NOTES:
ANDY: The wood finish looks the business and it seems to be stiffer and perhaps lighter, too. The only thing I don't like is that the front pad isn't versatile enough.
RICHARD: As soon as you get on it you're comfortable. Good acceleration and drive, and it points really well. It's wide enough for gybing to be comfortable, but not so wide as to negatively affect the way you can throw it around in the waves.
STEPH: It was OK for me in the lighter winds we had today, but I feel that for bigger winds, there are kiteboards that better suit my weight.
CHRIS: I think it's about the right size for me. It's just got a really friendly feel and turns splendidly. Makes riding a directional fun and easy.
RICHARD: I don't think you have to be an expert to get a lot out of this board. A good mixture for both snappy backsides and down-the-line. I'm a lot heavier than Steph and I felt like I needed a powered kite with it, so it would handle the stronger winds with me on, too.
SIZES:
6' 2" x 18 3/4"
6' 0" x 18 1/4"
