What we like!
- This board paddles bigger and rides smaller than the dims say on the board. With all that bottom shape, the board takes off on waves really easily and comes unstuck from the water. Once on foil, the board feels sporty and nimble.
- The quality for these boards are top-notch. When you pick it up, you can feel that the board is made well and is solid.
- The deck is mostly flat on these boards. That gives you a lot of surface area on the board to move around on for tacks, jibes and more advance surf moves. It gives you a nice stable platform to stand on.
- The inserts are a nice add so you can cross over to foot straps for some extra hard ripping.
- The tracks are set up in the right place so you can move the mast forward for a little extra lift surfing and back for a little less lift kiting and towing. You can also mount any type of pedestal mount foil on this board.
- The board comes with front and back EVA deck pads. The front pad is left off so you can stick it on if you like pads or wax it if you don't like the front pad. The tail pad has the two side parts stuck on and you can stick on the centerpiece with the kick tail where you want it. You can also get the Adjustable Carbon Kick Tail which you screw into the inserts and you can move the kick tail depending on where you want it.
- Paired up with the Armstrong foil, this board and foil combo is crazy solid feeling. Super stable and very user-friendly.
- The chined rails have a deep concave shape to make the rail thin. This thin rail is really easy to grab for duck diving and popping up.
- The crazy bottom shape of this board make it deflect off the water when you touch down the nose or rail at speed while kiteboarding. All other boards stick and you get launched. With the Armstrong, the board skips back off the water with no loss of speed or control.
- Surf foiling these boards on the Armstrong 1200 they ride best in the #4 position. For higher speeds you cane move it back to #3 position.
- The sizes and volume have been really well thought out to hit a wide range of riders and conditions from the super responsive 3'11 to super easy to ride 4'11.
