I need some advice on which is a better kiteboard underground flx or nobile 666. I am new to the sport so any advice would be appreciated, I weigh 90 kgs.

the best thing to do is try them both out. If your unsure what you like, both perform well and neither have any bad aspects.

IMO The nobile boards have more technology in them and are quite a step ahead, especially with you being able to adjust the boards rocker for chop when or if you like, they track very straight and are forgiving and have comfortable footstraps that are binding compatible, you can also get a special bottom for slider / kicker work or if you like to run over shells and rocks and want more protection. My last board was the underground flx, and now im on the 666, but if your only a beginner then the 555 will be just as usefull and cheaper than the 666.

its more what you want, and if you want abit more performance i would go the nobile

the hard part is that they are both really good boards, and either would suit the average person. So it's more what you happy to look at and pay for really. :)

I had a similar question a few weeks ago. Carbine replied, he had ridden both boards and recomended the Nobile 666.

Hey can't tell you what the 666 is like. However I got an ungerground 3 weeks ago, i'm a beginner to intermediate rider and I love this board. You won't be disapointed if you get, but as I said I havn't tried the 666.

I bought a 132 off a local dude that was 96kg and he said this board was to small for him. If it is and help he ended up getting a larger slingshot misfit but it could have been the other type os SS board, not too sure sorry, actually I think it was the other type of slingshot board, anyway, he loved the slingshot and said the design and size suited his weight. Not sure what his level of ridding was though.
