I would factor in the wind quality into your equation for board size. If the gust factor increases with the wind velocity, volume is your friend in terms of staying on a plane and actually enjoying t ...

Clips for Chinook are for 28mm tube. They could probably be made to fit if the slit for the pins is in the right place or can be altered to fit. Those clips are just a friction fit and tapped into p ...

If the broken batten end has sharp shards it won't back out of the batten sleeve, it gets caught in cloth folds. You have to remove from the mast side, that is easily done and I have done it several ...

If it is literally the strap, it is the AIRFLOW to the sides of the board and whatever the strap is attached to. Put a half twist in the strap so that it no longer acts like a reed in a wind instrume ...
