lost speed board at Hunstanton

The gods aligned yesterday to give some of the best speed sailing conditions I have seen for a long time. On the second run I wiped out at 43 knots but after a kite loop and too much skimming I never saw my board again with strong tides and to big a kite. The conditions where just to good and even o...

Re: Foil Boards

Re: Foil Boards

I'm glad I started this thread, as a curious observer it has made interesting reading! A few other points worthy of discussion....... For those who are foiling already, what is the learning curve like? I hear having directional riding skills is an advantage? Forget anything you think you know about...

Re: Foil Boards

My Carbon 6ix is being delivered on Monday. Having seen your post Davo, I checked and have been told that the deck grip on my production board is different. It's got a diamond cut Eva deck grip, a much better product. As for the size of the front wing. My understanding is that a larger wing makes i...

Re: Foil Boards

Davo, I have also got a Carbon 6ix and would be interested to hear how you are getting on with it. I've had about 16 hours so far and just about getting somewhere with it. I did weymouth speed week and was actually happy to complete 500m without crashing! I am only using the front straps at the mom...

Re: Foil Boards

I just found the FB page Interesting to see a tuttle box style fixing instead of a plate! Most of the ones I have seen so far are DT fittings... Talking to James today about the speedweek.. Sounded like he was topping his foil out earlier than anticipated and was going faster on a conventional spee...

Re: General Chat

There isn't such a board. twin tips are designed for normal riders bumbling around and tricking, to go fast you need a board that has completely different characteristics and i havent found any twintip thats good for going fast. I light winds try a race/slalom board on small fins its one hell of a r...

Re: So who is the Fastest?

Was a really fun event and lucky to have some great weather for speed sailing with some of the fastest times in competition in the UK.

Need more people next year the format is perfect for first timers so no excuses.

Re: So who is the Fastest?

I got a certificate too, from Weymouth last year, turns out it wasn't worth the paper it was written on haha! Good luck in France! How's the slalom board speed wise? Thats because it wasn't on WSSRC paper and cost many thousands to go and win it ;-) The slalom boards not as fast as I was hoping for...
