I second the recommendation for the Streamlined 1-bolt base. Been using them for years, never a problem. I gave Chinook a try once (because it was cheaper) and didn't like it. I sold it and replace ...

I've seen a bad stretch of no wind mid-summer but never in June. Yeah, we just had some big winds from our ocean storm, but sailing in a cold rain can only do much for my psyche. It's definitely got ...

I'm amazed the strong NE wind and waves didn't immediately wash you downwind onto the shores of Barnstable harbor. Is the outgoing tide that strong? I can see in a light wind day the outgoing tide w ...

The mast base should be positioned so that the center of effort of the sail falls between the front and rear straps. That way when you are powered up in your sailing stance, the pull of the sail is p ...

You can make a strong case for carbon with long extensions, but for medium and short extensions, I doubt there is a meaningful difference. I have a carbon Fiberspar long extension which is noticably ...

Not all Syncro's are great boards. The boards were tweaked a lot from year to year and some work better than others, but I don't think any were bad. They represented a major design change for Mistra ...

My weight is very close- about 187lbs. I usually use a 6.5m, but I've also tried 8.0m and 5.8m, all with the same large weed fin. The 8.0m is really pushing it, can't really recommend, but it does s ...

I thought the same- the board resists tight turns. Much happier doing moderate more drawn out turns. Even so, I find the board responsive to foot steering and good at making small quick turns. The ...

You're right on about chop. My 2007 Syncro 115 is excellent at handling chop (considering it's size). It also planes early and feels loose underfoot (again, for its size). I don't think it's very f ...

I've got an '07 Mistral Syncro 115l. Planes early, excellent control in chop, feels responsive and manueverable. Only mild criticism I have is the top speed feels average to me. Overall, the board ...
