North M2 125 (2004)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:The North M2 125 is definitely more suited to higher winds, but would work in light winds for sub-80 kilo riders. Freestyles well and feels very accomplished in waves with really good bite. It does it all well - ...

Naish Mutant 4'10"/145 (2004)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:The Naish Mutant 4'10 /145 is a good board for light-winds with really good wave-riding qualities and ideal in stronger winds for big guys, over 90 kilos. The Imperial Cruiser of kiteboarding, it seems like it wa...

Xelerator Surf Style 124 (2004)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:The Xelerator Surf Style 124 is great wave focus means you can't load up as much power as some other boards when it's windy, but there's always a compromise if a board is going to be this good in waves.MANUFACTUR...

Cyclone Slash Mutant 125 (2004)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:Cyclone Slash Mutant 125 (2004) - A board for powered-up conditions. Ultra-fast ride and you can still get a really tight turn in and there's enough float to be able to ride with a slashy style MANUFACTURER'S HYP...

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...

Naish Floater 140 (2006)

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 ...

Brunotti Double-O-Six 135

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...

Airush Hammer 137 (2006)

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 ...

North Converter 136 (2006

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...

Nobile 555 135 (2006)

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 ...
