This is the LW version of F-One’s popular Next twin tip with an all new pad/strap system and fresh graphics for 2016. The Next LW is a biaxial glass and wood construction deck with F-One’s unique reverse profile surf rail and rounded template. The Next LW comes in two sizes; we tested the larger. It takes the upside of a skim board and combines these traits with an easy-to-use kiteboard that works well in the lightest of conditions. The rocker helps this board get on an easy plane and while it’s a little on the skatey side, it’s nothing a little extra focus on heelside pressure won’t tame upwind, yet this is also what makes this board so fun. The Next LW handled the chop fairly well with forgiving rails and sufficient volume to lessen the importance of power control from the kite. We couldn’t help but think that this would be a great school/first purchase, but something you’d keep for down the road light wind fun.
