Thank you for your reply, Chris. Have you had a chance to use the Kode FreeWave 81 as well? How do the two boards compare?

Kode wave or kode freewave for freeride?

I am a slalom sailor, and I do not do any wave sailing. Sometimes, I sail in "nuclear" winds on a spot that gets extremely choppy, and even when I use my smallest (4.3) race sail and my smallest (68...

Worth noting that some Starboard-sposored racers (e.g. Taty Frans) use the Slalom Downwind in PWA events; I am not aware of any of them using the Slalom 8. Overall, the Slalom Downwind is considered...

I thought the last 'S' in KISS was for 'stupid'? Anyway, about the only way to measure the volume of a board is to do what the windsurfing brands do: plunge it in a tank with markings, and check by...

Yes, Taty is around that weight. He was 76 kg, then he bulked up for slalom racing, and I think that he is about 80 kg now.

Hi Emil,

The differences between a carbon iSonic, and the same model in wood, are:

- the wood board will be...

Asle,

I am with Mark: a 28 elliptical-shaped slalom fin (e.g. Sonntag, Gasoil Elliptique, Deboichet Upwind) is the ticket. If you can source a Deboichet SL4 (they are super fast), then go for a 30...

Plage d'utilisation basse

Apparemment, mes doutes quant à la plage basse d'utilisation étaient infondés: un de mes copains, vice-champion d'Australie 2013 de slalom, et qui possédait une 97 2013, a utilisé la 2014 dans seulement 12/13...
