I went for a sail the other day on my old formula board with a 9.5 Ezzy Cheetah. I zig-zagged my way upwind, then zig-zagged back downwind, as is nicely illustrated in the plot from my GPS.

If I put a bigger and more upright than usual fin on my freestyle-wave board I get sore shin muscles. I think it's from the toe-pointing and pressuring of trimming the board and riding off the fin. I ...

How do you decide where to put the "mast track" on the deck?

The mast should attach about where your big toes are when you paddle the board in flat water. If you center the mast track the ...

Bryn, would you say the Naish Thrust WS pops up similarly early and easy to the GoFoil, but is just more controllable with less spinouts? Or is it a tradeoff? I wonder if the Naish foil would work wel ...

Hey John I- I definitely want to come up and demo your windSUP 8'11" sometime. There will be some sup races in the Melbourne / Cocoa area that will get me up there sooner or later.

I picked up one of those cheap old Mistral Equipe's a few years back and I was pretty disappointed with how late-to-plane it was compared with wider, higher-volume boards. You had to be super powered ...
