Hi,
Sorry, I've been off enjoying retirement and hoping we'd get summer sometime soon up here in New England.
I tried the IDO when I was in Bonaire, and those of us who tried it agree that it...

Hello Nicko
The GO boards have an EVA (dense foam-like padding) surface over the actual Tufskin board. Are the holes in the EVA or has the surface of the actual board (much harder) been damaged?...

Hello Marek,
Sometimes, a sailor makes a move to a board that is just a bit too small and that provides more challenge and less fun than hoped for. The way to progress in windsurfing is through...

Hi Maria,
Good for you! Only *you* know what works for you. Maybe the guys have not noticed (ha ha), but women are built *differently* than men? And they have more upper body strength while we...

Hi Roly,

Sometimes, it helps to think systematically, kind of like a check list.

Hi
My 9'8" (camo), new as of Aug 2008, has 2 holes that you can fit your mast base into (no nut). I've sailed mine with 7.5-5.5, and done a lot of paddling on it, but not yet sailed or paddled it...

Hi,
Not everyone is happy with a waist harness. Get used to the board and sail, and your technique. Then maybe try to borrow a waist harness. Many people rush out and buy a waist harness and find...

Hi Windfixes
I'm going to vote with everyone else. It seems like a good idea to solve a problem you are having now, but buying a board to solve that problem won't help you progress with your...

As an observer of this exchange I feel I must comment here. There is a lot of difference in the wording and it is a very important difference.

but he says the specs are not on the website. I can see them there, so I don't quite understand why he isn't able to see them.

The volumes and dimensions (the specs you are looking for?) for the Futura 155 and 166 are on the website. Not sure why you aren't finding them there. It sounds as though the 166 would be the...

Andrea,
You can certainly try a larger fin, maybe 3-4 cm longer, to use with your biggest sail. Other less expensive things to look at: the condition of your original fin, and how much you are...

Hi,
I think that many of us would like to have the *option* to have larger footstraps. In the winter, many people wear booties. Even barefooted, I have wide feet (bunions) for a woman, and we have...

I've now had some time on the Futura 155 as well as the 111 and 133. All of them are great boards and definitely show advances from the Carve series. The 155 version is a light wind board and planes...

We usually keep teaching separate from demo events, since there is lot involved in each and there are only 2 of us. Since there is a windsurfing school at Extreme, we don't want to take...

Hi again Sandy,
More thoughts, but on going fast this time. First thing, "fast" is relative. What seems fast now, probably won't seem as fast later on when you are more comfortable and confident...
