WIND... how much can we sail in?? 40 knots of wind is a lot, when sailing any craft driven by wind. Most yachts will be heavily reefed already. Worst thing is the sea state though. 60 knots steady is...

It's funny to do something crazy outside the norm. I don't think that modern boards have soo much more top speed than the needles from the past. Anyway, the average speed, control and...

Imagine a race where you took a 10 years old formula board and had it competing against the latest models. NO chance it would get close to the medals.

It is quite interesting that longboards are...

My planing jibes are for sure more safe if I initiate them from port tack. And as I mentioned everything was faster and safer on this tack until recently, where i kicked the 30 knot barrier on my...

Which tack is your fastest?

For all the time I've been windsurfing I've always been a few knots faster while sailing on port tack. I'm right handed so on port tack my strongest leg and arm could take action where it's...

Longboards vs. sailboats in light winds

Hi..
I believed my longboard (Mistral Equipe+10.3 sail) to be definitely faster than a sailboat in all winds.

Reality seems to be, that unless it's really railriding = in winds where formula...

Great... You have a beautiful cruising area....

How long was the trip in distance and time?
Did you ever really get on a plane?
Couldn't you have carried a bigger sail?

The Carve 145 wasn't slow. It used to win a few slalom races some years ago. And that's one of my points. Modern freerideboards aren't slow or low tech at all. I doubt most riders would be able to...

I have three boards in the 10 to 7.0sail range: Equipe 372 cm, formula 159 and iSonic 122. It looks like the 320 could cover this whole range alone...

Thanks Remi.
Great pics.. The 320 doesn't look like a longboard at all. More like a short nosed raceboard (which it basically is).
Looks like a great jiber too.

320 or 380??? Life's complicated...

The 320 may be more controlled and efficient in higher winds compared to a traditional long board. But anyway in 20 knots a formula will probably beat both of them.
