WindSUP 11'2" x 39" Inflatable Fun

I just gave my first lesson on the 39". I had my student on the back for the sail out to some shallow water flats. Pointed upwind without any problems. Unbelievable stability and quick to move with...

Hi,

Considering you're weight and the sail sizes you're using, I think you could easily use the 82 as you're light wind board, but this depends upon whether you want the full on wave shape or the...

You don't need them although the straps will fit your foot a bit different without them. I used the anti twist on my 82, but not on my 77. But I did check to see that the screws wouldn't bottom out...

I have both boards and am exactly the same weight as you are. I think the E80 planes a bit quicker and some might consider it better at B/J than the Q82, but some of that depends upon the rider....

Unless I need to be corrected, it is my understanding that the Q77 didn't change at all.

The 5.8 works like a charm, especially when I run a 24 cm fin. For reference I'm 84 kg.

I mostly use MauiSails Globals, 5.8 and 5.4, in medium wind. When it gets stronger I switch to MS Legends.

I have two of them and I haven't found anything at that volume that is better at B/J sailing. The newer renditions are better at wave sailing, but when I want to go fast in rough, choppy water, the...

Other than not leaving it outside in the elements, you usually don't have to do anything special to the wood boards for quite a few years.

I assuming you would be using a 3.5 m2 sail because of...

I've been riding my K86 for the past two months in Arabian Gulf and have to agree with Giuseppe. Just a great versatile board that works well in most any conditions.

I fixed a stripped thread on the Quad with JB Weld. Cleaned the hole, filled with JB Weld, then I drilled it out and retapped it. So far still going strong after several months.

I have both boards. Too me there is little difference in flotation between the Kode 80 and the Quad 77. The Quad 82 feels distinctly bigger than the K80. However, I've only sailed the K80 in the...

I consider the K80 a more difficult board to progress in general wave sailing than the E80 because it sails smaller, even though both boards are quoted at 80, and doesn't take a bigger sail as well...

At your weight I'll say definitely. I'm 83 kg and I've sailed my Q76 with a 5.7 in relatively light conditions, 14-16 knots. The 5.7 seems a bit big, but it works for me. As soon it is hitting 17-18...

Hi Screamer,

Part of my preference for the PA-06 80 over my PA-07 74 or the PA-07 80 I think has to do with the 74 and the newer model 80 being more dedicated for wave sailing. I don't find them...

Definitely keep the PA80-06. For B/J and high wind offshore cruising with smaller sails I think it is one of the best I've ever ridden. I liked the ride so much I bought two of them in 2006. It also...

I weigh 83 kg. The Q76 is the biggest feeling, small board I've sailed when the wind drops. Even with a full 5 mm wetsuit on I can slog back to shore if I have any power at all.
