I feel that any respected publication that wishes to test a board should be allowed to do so.
Surely the more tests available on a particular board can only be healthy and helps us all to make a more informed decision ?

|viking||I am not British and English is not my mother tongue but Boards is by far the magazine I prefer to read and that is the most serious. Regarding to the test, it changes from the other mag for that all the board tested are always marvelous with no drawback.|

I have a certain sympathy with manufactures when they receive a test report they feel is unfair.
After all a lot of time, money and effort goes into bringing a board to market.
However there comes a time when to carry on a test ban starts to work against a brand.
Like you I was looking forward to the ET being tested in Boards.
I am sure we are not the only ones who were disappointed that Starboard asked Boards magazine not to test their board.
I feel the recent Boards magazine wave board test was fair and balanced and I can only hope that Starboard now reconsider their position.

Seeing what Ola can do in onshore conditions with his ET, the low score of the ET in the Boardseeker test was very surprising. I was looking forward to reading the Boards test to get another point of view, but apparently not going happen. Pity.
The Windsurf review was more or less meaningless. All the boards were quoted as being great for a large number of sailors in just about every condition. They totally missed out on the fact that readers want to know what makes a board special and different compared to another brand.

Please note itís the U/K Boards magazine I have mentioned not the test you refer to in Boardseeker which is a completely different publication.

Hi boyz, you write both the questions and answers.
Read again the following posts from Scotty and Ola
in this threat
It explains very clear what they think about these tests particularly.

I feel itís more to do with Starboards perception of how fair the tests are.
However there is a danger that people may draw all sorts of conclusions.
