I think the equipment exists in large slalom boards for light winds and small boards for stronger conditions. It is what most WS use (even if in detuned free ride format). It is light and simple to...

Black is the new colour. I don't mind black that has carbon content - seems authentic. Black is a good colour for wet suits in cold weather. But black cars that can't be seen on the road!

Nakaniko makes a good point with the roof racks. In the early days a lot of people learnt the hard way that the forces acting on the bars and their roof connectors is a lot more than imagined. So...

And the NP board bag I have is silver side to the bottom of the board which to me says the silver goes sunny side up nose forward. Have always carried boards that way because I don't want lift at the...

Yes, my HS111 is definitely a keeper. With 5.8m cambered sail am using 29cm fin. For my weight it does get a bit bouncy in the gybes with that size sail but the glide through the lulls is really...

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the tips. And I have noticed in upper wind speeds the 'black patches' on the water (when it is not that rough) that are a sign that things are about to get more interesting. All...

Hi Terry,

There is a trade off between the bulkier early planning gear and the convenience of relatively smaller lighter gear on and off the water both for boards and rigs. For myself, similar age...
