Now THAT is some funny shit!! Tom's review is pure magic and Jay's take was dead on. In my mind Jay's board looks like a rocket, so.. being into poker, I like the "pocket rocket" nickname :? Prolly the same as trojan?

Well, I happen to jump in 10 knots
Jack it up to 11 and now we are really having fun :lol:

I'm not sure if I know I've met Jay or not but I think I saw him out there Sun. He was going way up wind in next to nothing on that thing when everybody else was coming in.

I think I'm going to order a new symmetrical wakesurf board today, designed for behind the boat. I rode my old directional one once or twice with the kite and it is an upwind machine too.

Scott, you working at a kite shop now?

Think it was last Thurs or so when it was marginal wind out at BSSW.. I was on a large ply-board and doing OK upwind.. Jay was on a 16m kite and his skim and so far upwind that he was difficult to see in the distance.. and that was on two tacks.. one from BS to EB and then back again..

ive been riding pure flat ply boards for so long.. anything with a rocker feels slow.

i might give Skywalker boards a try.. was going to meet up with Dimitri M in hatteras this weekend before I called off the trip. he now rides these boards and will demo them for anyone in the area.

if not, then maybe an aggresion might be in the works..
