Alternative technique for getting upwind on plane effectively
Slight rewrite; I am looking to by a new board for me, I mean my wife. She mostly does freeride, and she blasts so I am trying to find something that is quick to get me on plane, and to stay on plane for her. And something very responsive to surf in the waves and jibe I will use it in the waves, she so far isnt wave riding, but soon.
She currently rides the Skate, and I love it. But I was thinking that Fanatic Hawk might be better for both, her. Or should I go with the freewave models? Or stick with the freestyle boards, as this one is working so well for her even as she does no freestyle which, oddly enough, I do.
Just trying to help out.
