Ultrasonic 2017

Hi,

Are there any changes to the 2017 Uktrasonic? Will it still be available in wood construction and will it have the new iSonic round tail?

Don't know about the bigger atomiq sizes, but the Aussies like to use slalom fins on the 100 and 110. No reason why you shouldn't be able to use one on your 130. Its a tuttle box, so maybe borrow a...

I'm guessing the 7m will feel a bit small on the bigger iS124. Still worth a try though. I reckon you would be better to try it with your existing fin first and try to feel how much smaller a fin you...

To be fair, there is a massive difference between a 78kg (light weight) and a 110kg (heavy weight) windsurfers. I'm 100kg and would be on either a 9.6m or 8.6m in 12k to 15k. For me, a 7.5m (7.8m in...
