Hi guys,
If you look at 'page 2' on this forum you will see that I asked the same question the moment the new model came out. I never got a full response to my question.

Hi Remi

Thanks for your response. So in 2017 if the 97 becomes 70cm width the same would apply as what you wrote above. When does the increase in width stop making sense. All the other companies...

iSonic 97 (2015) vs iSonic 97 (2016)

Hi Remi,

So why not start off from the iSonics and filter the best material down to the Futura. Isn't it odd that you give the Futura the best construction over the iSonics?

Ultra Core?

Hi Guys

Congratulations on your new line up. I have a quick question. If Ultra Core is 'the world's lightest windsurf board construction' why is it not on the iSonics?

I took delivery of my 2015 iSonic 97 model and to my surprise the back foot strap pad wraps around the deck all the way to the rail. Why is that? Surely this can cause unnecessary drag...
