The small tail fin makes sense to me. I've noticed the tail wiggle when sailing it. May make turning harder though.

One thing I've noticed with Serenity is it does have a little bit of "tail wiggle". I've wondered if using a rear fin might help with that. I also figured it would be harder to turn with a rear...

I've got a wood Hypersonic 105 with close to 150 sessions on it. Its one of the most durable boards I've ever owned and I don't think its hard to repair. Sure, to replace the wood would be hard,...

I'm surprised but the prices you quote are not out of line for the US either at least for new boards list prices. (There is probably some discounting, but I don't know how much. 10% seems possible,...

Great observation Ola. I'm probably proof of your theory and I kind of thought the same thing. I'm about 60 kg, and used formula boards and big sails for recreational sailing. Then Hypersonic with...

Andy,

I'm about your same size and also sailed wide boards with big sails. I've not raced formula, but I did own various formula boards. For me, 9.6 was the biggest sail I ever felt comfortable...

I realize this isn't exactly as scientific as using GPS, but today a friend chased me (on Serenity) on his jetski. He clocked me out at 18 mph on the quickest run! I was sailing 7.4 Aertoech...

RE: Catamaran/trimaran board

RE: Serenity - the way forward

I beleive that this is really a funciton of choice for the fin. With a smaller fin it is probably easier to sail on a beam reach, while the bigger fin increases pointing.

RE: Serenity - the way forward

The Atlatna Fall Classic is Oct 20-21 this year. Its the week before the "Fall into Liquid" race at Ft. Walton in Fl. I hope to race in both events this year. I'll have to try your suggestions.

RE: Serenity - the way forward

The Fall race is usually the 3rd weekend in October, but I don't think the date is set yet. I'll post it when it is. It would be interesting to compare notes and have another Serenity to race!

RE: Serenity - the way forward

I like Serenity up to the point I can get planning on a 7.4 on my hypersonic, or another wide board. I've sailed it in more wind than that, and it can be fun, but you aren't nearly as fast as a...

RE: Serenity - the way forward

I don't think bottom shape has much to do with it. I've sailed conventional longboards w/o a fin and its not a big problem. It actually makes them much more turny. I used to remove the fin for...

RE: Serenity - the way forward

I don't really think the length is that big of an issue. True, some people may not have the storage space or car that is big enough to cartop it. However, there are many kayaks out there as big as...

RE: bubble on the bottom of the board

Visit Boardlady.com. She has a picture of a repaid job on a board with a bubble on bottom. Doesn't look like a minor issue to me.

RE: Why I'm into longboards

Screamer, sounds like a great place for sailing, but not everyone is so well situated. Also. 50-100 days sounds like a lot, but thats 1-2 per week. If they don't occur on weekends, or whenever you...

RE: Serenity Q

I was using a 7.4 sail (which I've used for nearly all my Serenity sailing), and probably a little less wind. I'm wondering if by using a larger sail you are already getting lots of forward drive to...

RE: 2008 Serenity

My suggestions for 2008 (based on same shape, so this is fine tuning.)

1. A longer mast track might be useful (not to mention an adjustable track).
2. Build in a mounting for a Jez Knob in...
