Have opportunity to buy a Kode 80 in wood from either '10 or '11 - are there only a few slight tweaks between the two years? Price wise the '10 is good :)

Thank you, Mark

is the 06 acid the best bump and jump board ever? do I keep mine or up (down?) grade to kode 80 2011

I have two of them and I haven't found anything at that volume that is better at B/J sailing. The newer renditions are better at wave sailing, but when I want to go fast in rough, choppy water, the Acid 80-06 is what I grab.

I mostly use MauiSails Globals, 5.8 and 5.4, in medium wind. When it gets stronger I switch to MS Legends.

Im glad to hear You can use the 5,8 sail for your Acid 80 2006. I have just bought a brand new Ezzy Panther III for that board.
With regards,

The 5.8 works like a charm, especially when I run a 24 cm fin. For reference I'm 84 kg.
