Hi Shiner,

sorry for not picking up on your post earlier on Friday, as it was nice paddling weather - despite the temperature!

I had to shoot off back to Devon yesterday so couldn't hang...

Hi Benjif,

I haven't but know someone that has. Their feedback is that the board was very tippy and the middle fin setup made for large amounts of yaw. They were using the gen 1 Serentity though....

Hi Greg,

Yes that is a perfect option. Try them out and see how you go. Either board will work for you and only you can make that final decision once you've tried it on your waves. Have fun,...

Glad to hear you had some fun Scott. It's certainly a different feeling to what we are used to this days with short/wide windsurf boards. It's pretty refreshing isn't it!

Hi Scott,

Yes 41cm. It works pretty well. I did a light wind windsurfing race using that fin in the board and it was nice. For more performance (for windsurfing) maybe try a narrower fin? I...

Hi Blue Noser,

It is not a standard Starboard stock item - maybe it will be in the future. I'd suggest looking at Kayak shops. Many sea kayaks and sit on tops have storage nets so maybe you can...

Hi Greg,

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Changed internet providers and with Christmas in the middle it took a few days to get back online!

Looks like there has been some good...

hi Adrian,

I don't think you will gain much by getting a UB or drive instead of your Mr Easy. The 12'6" is marginally quicker on the flat and surfs nice like the 12' - they are just different...

9'8" all the way Greg. That's the one for you. You could go for 9' but I think you'd experience more waves and more luck on the 9'8".

Sounds like you've got a great SUP wave there. Where are you...

Hi Jb,

Yes good point and passed up the line. Options are a hard thing to get right - which ones to stock - the ones with the centre board or the one with the side fins? I take your point though...

The Tufskin 12'6" boards don't have FCS side fin boxes just a centre fin. Post the pic up once you get the fin and we can check you've got the right one.

Hi Mike,

Not sure what that could be. I think the boards are all hand checked/finished so probably something to do with that. I don't think it will be anything to worry about.
