Not attempting to put words in anyone's mouth, I think what grantmac017
was saying is that fanning won't pop your cams through, not that it doesn't work.

I think the dealer mark-up for big windsurf gear is probably around 20%.
I think that because that's their typical take for a board if I bring it in for
them to sell. Small stuff, like bases and un ...

Welcome to the wonderful world of cams. ;*)

I've always been a little worried about a carbon extension, and have stuck
with aluminum with no problems. I would be really hesitant to run a carb ...

Rig the sail up. Does it rotate easily by itself (maybe with a minor yank to pop it through).

If so, you're good to go.

p.s. if the guy was a serious racer, it'll be set up fine.

Bwahahahaha,

+2 so true, but usually not with them when they crack a board.

-Craig

All the Windsurfers I know have a better supply of spare boards than they do of repair tape.

Totally agree,

-Craig



To me changing to USBox on 1 broken and 1 good box would be a last resort.

You could do this, but then you're doing double the work. On the other
hand, I like bigger rear fins on Quads. With US boxes you could run the
thing as a twin. Still seems like a lot of work. ...

Never happened before. Definitely not in Windsurfing shape.

flop up top, but they haven't rigged floppy in the last 20 years of models.

Longboard sails typically rig with ...

Rather than getting too tied up in measurement markings, it's best to look at the sail and see how downhaul affects its shape. Most sail designers craft sails to work well over a gene ...
