So it planes early but seems to max out at a certain speed?

My first thought would be, "is the daggerboard up?" because if the daggerboard was down that would definitely keep you from doing true,...

Have you ruled out increasing amounts of weeds in the water as the reason for the fin spinning out more often now than before? It only takes one or two little bits of weed stuck to the fin to make it...

Both the UltraSonic and the iSonic 117 (not wide) were in a windsurfing magazine board test that I participated in last spring.

The iSonic was super duper fast and would be real good with your 7.0...

The SUPer 8'10" looks pretty interesting. I like that it has footstraps in the front, at least.

Are there any reviews or videos of it that give some more info on it's planing, paddling, and...

SUP that can plane - In the SB range?

I have a typical 10'4" SUP board from another brand. It has a mast track so you can use it with sail power, but because of the rocker shape it can never get planing.

It sure would be nice, both...

I'm the guy who made the video that MOP posted. Absolutely loved the UltraSonic 147. Lots nicer feel than the JP SLW, which I thought was under-finned and not particularly fast or comfortable. The...

Fin Fit Tip for Evo 83?

I rarely use the stock fin for my Evo 83. One of the reasons I'm not crazy about it is that the base of the fin isn't flush with the deck of the board. It's recessed about 5mm in the box. I think...

Basically, the longer the board is, the faster it is in light winds. So the Phantom 380 is faster than the Phantom 320 in light winds. The Equipe III is also 380 cm long, so it is probably...

Quad-fin boards next year!?

There's pictures and a write-up going around the internet about a new starboard quad fin board coming out for 2010. It looks cool, but is it true?

If it is true, does this mean there will be...

I'll second the suggestion for the Stuart Causeway. That's where those who don't sail the ocean tend to congregate in large numbers. The links provided give a lot of information about it.

Ditto prpa. The iS 150 isn't class legal for slalom 4-2, so it's more aimed for recreational sailors like the F-types.

Hmm... If you want to keep both your current boards, I think the iS 133 or futura 133 would be the best fit between them.

Or if you want to replace the S-type, I'd get a futura 122. It should...
