The Sessions I tried felt very much like a Northwave to me?

What type of mast do you have. That will narrow things down for you. A link here.

Greetings, Manuel!!!

I LOVE my Duotone quiver. Great sail, great power, great control. And no, you shouldn't got to FSW if you love Waves, you just can't replace a wave board for waves. Windsurfing as in life, has its trade offs.

Have fun!!! I really enjoyed my stay in Cabarette in 2014. What's the best season for wind an waves?

Thanks guys, yeah I know about the different styles, different feel, etc. I wish it was easier but this is what makes windsurfing fascinating!

I can ask 15 different people here and get well at least 15 different answers Very Happy !!!

For sure about the wind quality, wow, steady winds (and reliable water state) make a world of difference. It's a bit like skiing on a flat run vs moguls (and irregular moguls too).

Well, I depend on the used market since my sails hardly make it past 2 years (except for my zetas which are about as old as me!).

The KS3 seems attractive but what about the short and stout profile. Seems further to the Zeta than the Superfreak is.

Tried DuoTone SuperHero, great sail, nice tuning.
