    how is this board ? help ..!

    l have made the choce to get my first 100 lt board and my uncle has a AHD that hasnt been used. its a older model but he hasnt used it at all. but lm wondering because l have never been on a small board like this before will it be more dificult for me to master than a new style freeride board ? take a look at the pic.

    If it's free it'll be absolutely fine. Don't let anybody give you any b@llocks about how you 'need' a more modern, wider, shorter board with 17 fins.

    It will be harder to sail than a more modern wider board admittedly but if you manage it you'll have a blast. What are the board dimensions?

    havent got a clue about the dimensions of it. will see when l pick it up tommorow. are older styles more dificult to jibe ?
    whats the pros and cons of older styles ? mind you thay look more like surfboards than newer models and that seem like a good thing

    If its a similar age to your existing board it will just feel smaller so you should be fine.
    Anyway if its free you have nothing to lose

    The AHD's are good, even in the old designs, so I think you will find it fits the bill for what you are learning at the moment.

    That's a great board. There is a guy down here who buys a new board every year and keeps going back to his AHD. He has one sail and one board and flies. Go for it.
