Hi Jean Marc

All those boards are too big for me. I sail on a Tabou Pocket 75 simply because Starboard don't make a Trifin and I refuse to buy a Quad cause it doesn't suit me or a twin fin which...

Your thoughts on BLUE iSonics?

Hi Guys

Am I the only one that thinks the 2014 & 2015 iSonics look awful in Blue. I currently have a Futura 97 2013 and 2 iSonics (97 & 110) 2013 in my quiver but I refuse to update any of my...
