Hi Berg,

Interesting topic.

Do you think will we have more questions if their a forum dedicate for Formula, actually they can ask the questions on Ask Your Team or Free Forum?

Do we need at this time to have one also for Slalom, Free-ride, wave, etc?

All the best

I think a dedicated formula forum would be a good idea if the volume of posts made it difficult to search out only formula. However, at the present time, the volume of posts for any specific type of sailing (freestyle, slalom, formula, freeride, sup, wave, etc.) is so small that finding what you want to read is VERY easy. It also depends on how often one looks at the forum. If it's once a month, then finding posts on a particular subject may take a minute or two longer.

If each discipline had it's own page, would it increase participation? I don't know, but I don't think it is needed at this point in time. I am a formula sailor, so I always look at formula posts.

What about the formulawindsurfing.org web page?

That's what I thought of too, formulawindsurfing.org has a forum, but maybe not as active as I would like...
Maybe it makes sense to break free forum into sailing categories: Race (formula/slalom), Freeride, Wave -
one advantage I see, would be easier to find a answer to a Q

specific forum for starboards here is benefit because all owners here have starboard. So It is lot of information we can share. Also starboard could benefit from this. Would It be great all info of THE HWR here About THE Fins for example. Cant finf forum in THE world with this info.

I guess the question is - If there was a formula forum, would formula sailors post questions that they don't already post on the current forum?

I don't think the existence of a formula forum would motivate me to ask questions that I don't already ask on the current forums. It may be different for other sailors.

I have post before about information on formula technique and tactics because there is not much information about it inthe web or this forum.
As starbord is supporting the formula experience and ithink the plan is make it appealling to every one, yes there is a need of a dedicated forum, we all know that for a novice formula boards are very earlly plannig but from there to race it is it a whole different game.
Anyways there is a forum for Peter Hart, who is a guru, but he has not posts in one year or so

I agree, there are forums around the world. But this is the place for Starboards and matching fins, sails, technics etc. on other forums there you can find interesting things. But it's up to Starboard now.
