Not really more complex, just different and does many more things so there is bound to be a learning curve. Hang in there, it will all get easy with familiarity.

Xfoil can be used to calculate cavitation speeds for windsurfing foils. These calculations are as I understand it correlated with actual tank tests. The speeds calculated correlate very closely with...

It will be difficult and probably be unfair to try to use a yardstick number without adjusting it for wind strength. I note that the latest version linked above has such adjustment for the Windsurfer...

Hmmm... I would have used 430 bottom and 400 top. The reasoning is that the 400 bottom with rigid mast extension would make the bottom stiffer in it's curve, much like a 430 bottom.

Sorry Floyd, I didn't follow any of that. It does seem to suggest a lot of 'qualifications' though. I would like to know what the 'experimental data' showed.

I have actually experimented with 6.5m sails on a Formula in light winds (10-11 knots) and I can tell you that the Formula board planes much easier and downwind much deeper than any other narrower...

I am pretty close to your size and Use the ISonic 87 in the winds that you mention with mostly 5.8 KA Koncept, sometimes the 6.6m or 5m. It is a real gem for me. Very quick, easy to control in the...

RE: Fin for KidsPro S-Type as Speed Board?

The ProKids Sonic 06 and the iSonic50 '07 are very different boards even though some of the measurements are in the same ballpark. Both are very fast though!

RE: New Stretchy Wesuits

New wetsuits are ALWAYS warmer than old ones. The old ones break down internally and lose their insulation properties. But I am of the firm convection (!) that a new thicker one is warmer than a new...

RE: Fin for KidsPro S-Type as Speed Board?

I am only 74 Kgs and 5'10" and I found assymetrical speed fins between 19cm and 22cm worked very well for me. For your size I would think the 22 -24 range would be the go in Assys and 25-28 in...
