will give it a good go for you, how wide is the little one you have done for gaz and davo, the ones i am doing are wider than the underground i rode last year but still sub 30 cm. the underground was 27 i think.

my initial thought on the missile is that as i think you intend for it to be ridden flat i would move the rear straps further outboard if you can? i think the lift from the fins could overcome the relatively narrow width, when getting a shift on.

Gaz's board was made for his size 7 feet 26.5 the others are around 28 the old boards were 30

The deck is quite domed so you can get your foot round its not flat like the race board
but they can be moved out on the foot strap screws wish I could get a nice pair of new Dakine footstraps for the back ( GRF ? ) :roll:

Mike, I can see a design fault with the missile, as soon as it reaches a decent speed that football is going to drag like hell :shock:
I really don't hope to need the light wind board this year but it will be interesting to have just one light wind day to try it, I think i tried Jame's race board last year and couldn't even waterstart it.

Not sure on the official results or anyone elses but best I could do today was just over 29 knots over 500m.
This is how my best board ended up when I wiped out in front of one of the windsurfers on a speed run, He may not ride so close to another kitesurfer in the future after hitting my board and taking a chunk out of it, not sure how his fins are but they must have ben bloody sharp.
