Now I'm more stoked than ever that I ordered a Serenity. Really nice video. It does a great job of promoting a overall concept, and the wind speeds are ridiculously low. What size sail was used?

The part reflecting the jibe was really fantasic, even the sail design complemented the picture quite well.

Well done Remi!

Pardon my french but was your speed 13.5 knots in 3-6knots of wind?

Remi 28th January 2008 08:51 AM

Hi steveC,

I test this prototype with and old Star-Board Race-Board sails 9,5mē proto that must be production right now. This sails work really well on this board. Excellent board for many place around the world were their not soo much wind.

Nice to see that you love the concept, I love it too.

All the best

Hi Joe,

Yes the wind max was 6 knots so absolute impossible to plane with any board (Formula for exemple) and the GPS give a max speed of 13,5 knots. I think it"s possible to do more with a real flat water.

All the best

Very impressive. It looks as though that board has a rear fin?

Remi 28th January 2008 09:42 AM

Hi Joe,

It was an old protype.

All the best

What`s your weight Remi and how does Serenity perform with "heavies" aboard ???
Looks real impressive.

Remi 29th January 2008 02:32 AM

Hi Floyd,

My weight was 87 kgs when I do this video.

All the best

One thing I've noticed with Serenity is it does have a little bit of "tail wiggle". I've wondered if using a rear fin might help with that. I also figured it would be harder to turn with a rear fin. Is that what the proto showed?
