PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Tue Oct 15, 2019 6:51 pm   Subject: Light Wind Option for joethewindsufa

Another factor I keep bashing on is that 30kts setup can still rocket upwind and through lulls, a speed sailing specific slalom setup has nowhere near that kind of VMG potential.
Good upwind angles a ...

Example: just yesterday Damien Leguen on a Zeeko aluminum foil got a rather stunning 32 knots over 500 meters. This in 16-18 knots, 2-3 feet chop, and a 6.3 (!!!!). Follow this thread at https://www. ...

Small sample.
And manipulated data.
You are a bloody moron. There's absolutely nothing "manipulated" about the data. Just because you're slow on a foil and think you're fast on a slalo ...

Yes, a fast foiler on a 500-800 sq cm front wing will blow doors on slow windsurfers every time.
Quite an ignorant comment. Follow the link in the original post, click on the names of the sailors, an ...

I jumped on the old Mistral Prodigy dance floor today in a typical, light 8-12kt breeze. Much to my surprise, I even managed to get the beast up on the plane a few times. My whole point in starting ...

I looked at the Fanatic page for the Sky SUP, and a few things jump out. The image shows a single point mast mount, but the text talks about a mast track. Big difference since single point mounts tend ...

I should have looked at the pictures more closely. Good catch by Manu. I assumed this was a similar issue like the one I had with a Chinook carbon boom. That one looked a bit bent on shore after a ses ...
