I don’t love riding my big 144 x 47cm RRD Placebo twintip. It’s heavy and not the most maneuverable board, but I’m still really happy I have it in my quiver. I only pull it out when winds are light even for my large kites. It gets me riding when I might otherwise be staying on the beach. It’s also nice to have a twintip strapped to my feet when my kite is flopping around like a jellyfish and my hands are busy relaunching it.
I’m happy to lend this board to my GF or anyone else who might need some help staying upwind in light conditions. If it gets lost or damaged I won’t freak out.
I wouldn’t spend a ton of cash on one, but if you see a large kiteboard for sale at a swap meet think about adding it to your quiver.
