View Full Version : Apollo 2009?
20th August 2008, 11:18 AM
I want to buy my 1st formula board, due to moving to Malaysia (Malacca) and having only low wind there.
Is the Apollo still produced. I cannot find it in the 2009 catalogue?
What is the best board for early planning at low wind?
My weight is about 80kg at 178cm size.

all current batch of formula board are plain early, if you can find Apollo it should give
you some extra pop, but the other 2 big factors in early plaining, are your pumping technique and fin selection (custom would be the best way to go currently)
If you can't find Apollo, I hear gaastra formula is friendly to heavier guys, or you can order
a custom board from Mike's Lab maybe, for same price or cheaper than production retails,
and get a better construction

Please find future specs of Apollo 2009 once to be ready for release here :
With a Severne Code Red3 11m2 sail and the stock Drake 75 cm fin, the french magazine Planchemag test crew surmised that they were able to start planing as low as in 6 knots of wind and sustained planing as low as in 5 or perhaps 4.5 knots of wind.
