If it is similar to my Kona One, you might be in what I call slow plane mode. Because the board is rockered, I am able to get it to plane from an area of the hull that is forward of the normal...

Something you might want to do is to rent / borrow boards before buying. There are two reasons for that.

I tought tailwalking was more when the board starts to oscilate from right to left and lift you over the water and the fin. The board nose doesn't raise much more than the...

My wife is at that level, similar weight and she is using a 4.0 WindSUP sail from Aerotech. She's happy with it, especially since it is light and quick to rig. These sails are inexpensive even new,...

What about going upwind and downing with the US147. Is it much better than most boards while just not competitive with Formula boards?

The FSW board was 57 cm, so the Starsufer S will be stable enough.

You are right, I meant distance between mast foot and fin.

You are also right that I am simplifying. However, my take is that I will choose sail size first according to the wind. Theoretically,...

I had the same question last year. The reason is linked to both sail and board geometry. A large sail will require more distance between the mast foot and the fin, in order to have the CE of the...

The final results shows total domination by Max, only bullets. Were the individual races tight or was he simply much faster?

The *board SUPer Wave 8'10 could be what you are looking for. The back is flattish for planing.

Otherwise, the Kona 11.5, now renamed in Exocet, could meet your requirement.

Thanks again,

I also wonder about planing performance. Once planning is clearly established, maybe at 12 kts, is there a big speed difference between FW and Phantom?

Have you tried too a 380 or 377 raceboard? I understand it would require maybe 1 or 2 kts more that the Formula. I guess it would be...

Thanks for the review Tonymatta and for the comments Remi.

It looks like a great board for my kids. As I'm much heavier, I think for me a scaled up version of the 295 would be great. A phantom...
