Hi, Does anybody use the exocet x-wave 93. I think this could be a good board for me, but cant find any tests or feedback on the forum.
I need a board for 4.2 to 5.7 sails for bump and jump in choppy conditions. Rarely some smaller waves.
i know the tabou 3s 96 (2015). I hope that the x-wave is a little wavier with thruster setup and maybe better to control with 4.2 as it is 3 cm smaller. If that is the case I wozld sell my old mistral,wave fish 84 becuase it is no fun with my weight of 96 kg when the wind is gusty and not steadily strong. The x-wave then would be my smallest board.

best regards
Alex

In the conditions you describe go the 3s and grab it quick if you know of one available.Probably one of the best bump and jump boards around. A good bump and jump board requires speed and the 3s has plenty. A more wave orientated board with thrusters wont have the same feeling and just seem boring Imo. Ive been looking for a 96 ltd 3s of that year for a while and cant find one. Keep the mistral for the big days as no 95L board is going to be much fun with anything under a 5m sail when fully powered up in chop. Im the same weight as you and have 3 boards to cover a sail range of 4.2 - 5.9 smallest being an 80L single thruster wave board which doesnt get used much but is a must on the right day.

Respectfully, no. At 96 kg, a modern 95 L board is as small as anyone that weight needs for a 4.2.
