I also have an old Tiga, the 263 which is narrower than the 259. Both are poly boards, somewhat heavy, but very, very smooth in the chop and great at jybing. I only take mine out when it is a steady 25 knots plus. A real pain if the wind drops for me since it is a sinker.
The only negative for the Tigas are the foot straps, which tend to twist a lot.
