Check out http://thewindsurfer.com/ for the local Vancouver/Squamish windsurfing community - pretty active forum with some pretty good local wind forecasting and reporting.

Vincent,
if you can't find a rear end, and if the extension tubes on your rear end are still OK (i.e, the break occured in the actual tail piece, so you can cut the tube at the joint to the old...

Stokes,
one more cool thing about Formula in the Bay Area, especially for those of us with jobs and families, is that you can pretty much schedule your sessions. It's very rare to hit any afternoon...

Stokes,
as someone who's lived and raced in the Bay Area in the past - it's a great fleet to hang with. Very deep talent pool, very competitive, and very friendly and supportive.

Incidentally -...

In the San Francisco Bay Area formula fleet (which is arguably the deepest, most competitive in the US), Steve Sylvester (at 61, I believe) consistently gets top three finishes. This is in a place...

Ken,
funny thing about mental 'lock-in' - I somehow doubt that (at least Deboichet) will change over to something more 'rational.' Think QWERTY keyboards - those were designed when the first...

Ken,
give Bruce a call at the Sailworks loft (541-386-6561); he'll be able to tell you. There was the old 'standard' rake (the very first R13's), which became the basis for all the +x nomenclature....

Funny thing about "inside the box" vs. "outside the box" thinking is that often the problem is purely one of perceiving the true dimensions of the current "box." Meaning that often, people come up...

RE: Severne Code:Red R2 vs MauiSails TR-3 vs Hansen Formula HCL

Particular reasons for the three contenders? Is that what you local shop can get you (and hence what you can get support for), or is it brand loyalty of some sort? Price?

RE: Serenity - the way forward

Length seems a concern for anyone having to transport one of these. OTOH, the application (light air sailing in flat water) pretty much makes it a shoe-in as a club board. Putting a fleet of these in...

RE: Race sails

Actually, my point was that laminates have all sorts of really cool benefits - I just don't see how any of them create a better all around package than straight film. Unless you change the model of...

RE: Race sails

Interesting conclusion. Maybe I'm not getting this, but AFAIK, laminates are advantageous in situations where you need structural stiffness - you have different layers of stuff, and that stuff...

RE: Stop Formula XXL Sails!

There's a FW class with its own set of rules - those are voted on by class members through a representative system at the AGM. So far, the class has resisted calls to limit sail sizes. You can...

RE: Kashy Formula Fins XXS

Isn't Mike already making fins? Thought I saw that on the calcup list somewhere.

As for all the yelling about fins - custom formula fins tend to be the one piece of windsurfing equipment that...

RE: ST carve 99 and Sailsworks hucker 6,6 versus Tushingham 6,5 freeride

Give it a bit more downhaul if it stands you up on your toes. The Hucker can be tuned for loads of range and will depower with the draft moving down if downhauled more.

RE: Stype 93 For Ian

Ian,
niche question for you. How does the sT 93 do in truly overpowered, truly chaotic conditions for a big rider (95kg)? Wind shadow on the inside makes float and sloggability mandatory, yet 6 foot...

RE: Fin Screws

In the US, stainless steel M6 bolts are readily available at most West Marine locations, w/o too much of a surcharge over 1/4-20 SAE. If no West Marine is close by, many Lowe's locations will have...
