In short, yes. A slightly wider, thicker board than many which makes for a soft landing on those bigger moves. Holds the rail well in larger surf, stays true in the pocket with well tested channels and design providing good projection 5/5
USA rider here! Soooo happy with my purchase of the bullet kinetic 44in! I come in it 6'3 200lbs and this thing floats me just fine in bigger surf...excellent control on the wave face and the speed is unreal...its a lil tricky getting the board to the US but just talk to the glorious folks at stealth and they will be glad to help you with anything you need...the customer service is unreal...cant wait to try out more products from stealth!!
