RE: Is Starboard F-type good for me?

Marek, often old long boards can be picked up very cheap. I have an f-type I love and use an F2 Lightenng (the old version) I got for free, when the wind os really light. Look in local gear listings...

RE: How to effectively pump to plane?

RE: Removing Fin

A related question. I've got one fin that sits so deeply into the fin box on my F-type that when it's screwed in, the base of the fin is recessed 3mm from the board. Should I put something around the...
