SailsEast are based in Hong Kong I believe. They also make windsurfing sails, Aerotech.

Ken,

I think all your points are valid. I hope my Futura 93l lasts 8 years, cause she's a real keeper :)

Not sure how it compares to wood carbon, but I would have to say the opposite about wood. Out of all constructions I think it is probably the most fragile. I think it's pretty easy for a wood deck to...

I want to start learning vulcans. The smallest fin I have for my Futura 93l is a 30 freeride swift, which is quite easy to spinout with.

Would center back footstraps + <5.8m camberless sail + 30cm...

Hi gr. Marco,

If you're 100% sure that speed is what you want you'll eventually want to get some sails with cambers. I've found wave sails are great on the Futura 93l, because they're sooo light...

I've used a 5.6m 5 batten fsw sail on my 93l. It was very enjoyable, and pretty fast too on the gps. Super easy jibes and jumps.

Good to know this, as I've also tried the largest Supersport 74.

Definitely, a comparison between the US and the JPSLW needs to be in order!

Full carbon not mentioned in iSonic Video

The video fails to talk about the new Carbon construction. Why? Would it disprove the use of wood and woodcarbon in the past?

All I can say is that my Futura 93l Wood 2009 feels really, really crisp on the water. I remember the first time I engaged the rail for a jibe on that board, it simply felt too easy.

Depends on the conditions. If you're underpowered on the 6.0m you'll probably appreciate the 38cm. If you're really over powered a standard 34cm fin might be better, or a 36cm Venom (which is what I...

Haven't tried the Rocket, but I've tried a Pocket Wave 93l in carbon, and I can tell you that my Futura 93l Wood has more pop (easier to chop hop), speed and felt much crisper on the water.
