Remi Hi Greg,

At your weight both can work but the LWR is less physical and more easy, so better to choose the LWR.

All the best

Lwr or hwr

Hi Remi,

So what do you suggest in terms of a choice for me?

Unregistered Hi Remi,

I believe both but at first I have to start sailing formula and learn as much as possible and than maybe race at the end of 2010.

Remi Hi Greg,

Did you will use this board for race or just for enjoy for light winds?

All the best

I am thinking of buying formula board. I am 172/76kg. Now I ride Angulo Magnum/Naish Redline. Which board would you suggest LWR or HWR. I mostly sail up to 22knots.
Please advise as I am a little confused with the choice. As always more choice more problems :-)

Remi Hi Unregistered,

We make a board for light riders and heavy one to make satisfy all and give a chance to all to be competitive despit thei weight. Now is only up to you if you want to buy 2 boards, but as far I know their is no change on this since the beguining of the Formula. The rules say only one board for the event.

All the best

"What I am reading is that in order to be competitive I will need 2 formula boards next season.
1 for lightwind and 1 for hi wind???
The point of the FW class rules that put boards on a 2 year cycle was to eliminate things like this and make formula easier to get into."

Poster #30, you do NOT need two boards to be competitive.

The option to have two boards is not new.
During 2008-2009 anyone could have two boards say a F2 Z (for light wind) and a 162 (for high wind).
Starboard i believe want to make Formula attractive to both Heavy and light weight racers, who want to ride Starboard.

Unregistered I may have missed this, but does the two new Formula boards have inserts for two chicken straps or just one on the centerline. I see where the new Exocet formula board has inserts for two offest straps from the centerline as does the Mike Z boards. And I see where some folks in high wind places have added those inserts later.
