The board is solid and well made - its shaped by Sky Solbach. It comes with fins, full deckpads and footstraps. I decided to try it out strapless. The first session was at Hampton in lighter wind. I found it really easy to get going on and was immediately going upwind well. The board does bounce around a bit at the nose but its not a problem.
I couldn't find one in Melbourne but was able to get one from SurfFX in Queensland. The guy I spoke to on the phone was helpful and delivery by courier was very fast.
The board goes upwind so well you can use a size smaller kite. Its like the Sector 60 without the bulk and weight.
It turns well on waves and is really stable for gybing. I can now recommend it too!
