RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

I think the answer is no or that it doesn't live up to it's claims, hence the silence. I hope I'm wrong but if it did work, then I think we would be hearing more about it.

RE: increase sales and promote sport

Costco or any other big box retailer would have to be willing to take them in inventory. The problem I see with this distribution strategy is that windsurfing in its current form isn't plug-n-play...

RE: Formula Windsurfing Worlds, Arnon and Gonzalo

Dave & Ceri,

I did read their report and you are correct it sounds as if they did file a protest, however my point is that by staying at the regatta they had the opportunity to continuing to...

RE: Military Coupe in Thailand

I think Svein is out of the Country attending Surf expo in the US and I bet he won't be able to get back in for a while. I cant imaging that its good for windsurfing since 90% of WS boards are made...

RE: Formula Windsurfing Worlds, Arnon and Gonzalo

It's still bad sportsmanship to leave early and bad mouth the Race Committee. It does sound like some questionable calls were made, but it certainly appears that many of the top guys where able to...

RE: Starboard Appollo/Formula Windsurfing

Ken,

I hear what you are saying, but shouldn't Starboard be applauded for attempting to lowering the planing threshold? Realistically TOW is the biggest factor in FW racing, gear is important but...

They are using the Extender to have a better extension system. At least they are innovating and trying to build a better system. Innovation in windsurfing seems rare these days and companies like...

RE: Apollo Vs F161

FW rules wind minimum is 8 knots not 6, however the best sailors can plane in 6. So the question is can the Steve Allen's of the world get this board to plane in 4 knots?
