RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

Peter

Thanks - it is great to get your view

But what fin were you using on the Apollo?

And what was the fin on the 161?

I think this is important information when making a comparison.

RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

There appears to be some confusion between the wind speed required to plane and planing speed. I don’t mean to be patronising but it is clear some education is necessary. (Some poor soul is bound...

RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

The wind was good for testing the Apollo today. Average 10-12 mph initially (more in the gusts) dropping off to 8-10 mph later.

I rigged Neil Pryde RSs 9.8 and 11.6.

Over 4 hours of testing...

It would appear that news travels fast!

Perhaps Starboard needs an Italian forum

RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

Wind is looking good for Saturday - 8mph (7knots). Should be out on the 11.6 but perhaps even the 12.5 if its not too gusty

Regarding the damage to my Apollo the UK distributor Tushingham were very decent about it and gave a significant discount that should more than cover any repair costs which would be necessary to make...

RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

The sail range of both boards is quoted as 7.5 to 12.5.

They were both planing with a 9. I doubt I will find anything else significant with a larger sail other than the Apollo's nose will sink...

RE: Anybody try the Apollo Yet?

An interesting comment by "Guest" but one I am unable to agree with as yet. I speak with some experience as the x-186 pictured in my post above is a 2002 board. It is wood like the Apollo and my 160....

I had planned to do similar comparative photos (as per my last post)

On the face of it the Apollo is noticeably wider in the tail than the 161. (the 161 doesn't seem very...
