These 2 boards, although sharing the "crossover" or FSW tag are chalk and cheese. I had the 2006 Kombat and it was awful. One of SB worst boards in my opinion. I think the yellow one (2008?) got a...

Gap in the starboard range?

Despite starboards huge board range you don't seem to have a board that your competitors offer...a freestylewave/crossover shape in about 75L 55cm wide??. According to the site the Kodes change to...

Hi Roly.
Ive just been through this waterstarting. You perhaps have the issue of the board pointing too upwind when you put your back foot on, as roger suggests, which depowers the sail and drops...

Its interesting that most of the modern tuition DVDs never mention to 'bring the mast up wind". They tend to focus on "sheeting in" and "move back slowly" to help learners progress. My theory is that...

Roly, your description is the same way I do it. when flying the rig, the board is pointing straight into wind. I sometimes sit the foot of the sail on the board between the back footstraps and wait....

Hi
I got a MFC freewave 28cm for my kombat 96. Nice fin. works really nicely with 5.7m
For 6.2 you could prob get the 30cm version.

well, I'm not team, but maybe the Kombat 96? This would be about the right step down in volume from your Go155 but would still provide a bit of float for your weight. It is likley to handle lake chop...

I agree the Kombats from 06 onwards would fit the bill, but you don't really say what sail sizes you are using most often at this spot? Another board I would look into also is the Exocet cross....

thanks Roger, appreciate your help. Yes when i saw the video i was a bit surprised how tall i was standing also. Funny how what you think you're doing is quite different to what you are doing.

Hi Roger,
yes you are right, I am guilty of using the upwind angle as a bit of a safety valve. The speed has freaked me out! I'm 78kg. The mast is slightly forward of centre in the track with the...

Hi Roger
I just got a used K96 and took it for its first ride. It was great. quite a bit different and less stable than my carve 131 and the smallest board I have ridden to date. I think this will...
