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.
Heard god things, no first hand experience.ON paper I like it, esp the USBox center
Does somebody else has experience with the x-wave boards?
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.
