Thanks Windman - I googled his name and found an interview with him and he talks about why he doesn't have sponsors. He's not very happy about one of his former sponsors (Gaastra)!

Is Steve Allen independently wealthy? How else can he afford to compete at the top level without sponsors? I'd like to know more about him.

Thanks for the comment Remi. The sail range I'm looking at is basically 8.5 to 10.5. I'm assuming 10.5 is a little big for the 133 and 8.5 a little small for the 150. Which is the better...

The real test would be to have AA and DB switch equipment back and forth between races within events with conditions being similar. Give them time to tune the equipment to their liking and then let...

I am beginning to suspect that Starboard hasn't sold a single Isonic 150! If it has then that one person either isn't willing to talk about it or doesn't read this forum.

Isonic 150 vs. Isonic 133

Remi sure likes the Isonic 150. I've never sailed one, but I've sailed the 133 and quite often against the 133 (recreational sailing) and I'm very impressed! Does anyone have experience with both...

It would be interesting to know if his new NP sails have given him an advantage. They sure look radical!

If its between a formula and an is150 then you have a tough decision. I have a free formula 158 which I really like (I must since I still have it). Soon I'll have an is150 and I'll keep the FF158. ...

I guess it depends how competitive your are. Do you want to go faster than your friends - especially upwind? If so, then get an Isonic. At your weight I'd go for the Isonic 111. If you buy a...

Hi Remi,

I'm about 82 kilograms in weight. I've owned and sailed a 147 formula and presently own both the Free Formula 158 and 138. I was surprised how early the 133 plans and how well it goes...

Hi Remi,

Thanks for your response. I don't care about the PWA rules, but maybe that's why there's not much information about the iS150 on the forums here. I'm interested in a board that's...

Question for Remi. iSonic 133 vs. iSonic 150?

I'm looking for a light wind board. I've sailed a friend's 133 and found that it planed very early and cruised through lulls very, very well. I'm curious to know how the iSonic 150 compares against...

RE: Am I right about the mast foot position all the way back on an F-type?

I would think that the size of sail and size of skeg are balanced by mast foot position. I am more confortable and I believe faster when the mast foot position is placed closed to the front with big...
