Just wanted to let you know about something. Remember when I had to get rid of 110 Carve because it was too small and frustrating for me?

Well, last weekend I was happily...

May I ask why?
I've been in similar situation and sold my 145l board. My current (and only) 125 l board handles 5.5-9.0 without a problem (ok, for 5.5 it's not perfect - depends on chop size - but I...

I'm pretty sure 10.0 should work ok, I'd get as light rig as possible (so not a full race on machine, but rather a 2-cam freerace/freeride or no-cam, like Retro). They will get you on plane earlier,...

Problem with Heli-tack

Hi,

I know this is a basic one, but I'm still having troubles with it.

Last weekend I've been trying to learn this nifty trick to sail fin first (to get out on a shallow water), it sometimes worked, but usually I'd stall with my board being perpendicular to the...

My "smaller" sail, Gaastra Remedy 6.4 does not have a wide, low foot so yes, to close the gap I'd have to really rake it back.

Hi,

Out of curiosity, why are you so happy about Start, it's 230 liter board, for your 200 lbs (90kg) seems like an extremely huge beast?
