I have a 2006 starboard iSonic 133. I like it a lot.

Recently I saw a rider with the iSonic's predecessor, the Hypersonic. I noticed the huge difference in bottom shape, the concaves and lack of...

Credit is due. It's sad to see there is still a generation of older windsurfers who occasionally dump on kiting, including some in the industry. Some people get hostile when they feel threatened.

Lakes not all created equally. The surrounding topography will have a great effect on the consistency of the wind. A pond in the Praries could be sailable as long as the land is flat, while a long...

Just got a iSonic 133. It's sweet. Everything good you've ever heard about it is absolutely true. Anything bad was written by those Carve 140-whatever boosters. It always planes and never gets...

I would guess that most people's fastest tack is starboard. (No pun/endorsement intended). Reading here it seems that's not true. The majority of people are right handed, and port is given a...

Been using a 7.5 Naish Freeride sail since spring, and having some problems. I wondered why it felt sluggish, heavy and inefficient. I was ready to give up and go back to a 6.5 V8 from the mid 90's...
