I assume that it was North Sails doing a photo shoot at Kanaha, Maui, Hawaii on April 20, 2008 since a lot of the gang were wearing North Sails T shirts. They dumped their gear on the pathways making...

RE: Free Forum NOT FREE

Starboard,
What were you thinking when you went back to a free forum. And then a T shirt incentive to post your name? To me this has become a Neil Pryde type of marketing gimmick instead of the...

RE: EVO 83 or 91

Hi Doby,
With my 83kg and history of arguing with the "small guys" I am finding it different to be lumped in with them. I do agree with your point that with someone who is heavier needs to go with a...

RE: EVO 83 or 91

I weigh 83 kg and although my Evo 92 is my most used board, I prefer my 5.8 on my Evo 80. So I agree with Ola that for your specifications I would go with the E83

RE: Max sail size for 76 Fish

Hi Greenroom,

The largest sail that I could put on my fish 76 was a 5.4 and on my Fish 90 was a 6.9 (but that was really pushing it). In both cases I threw away the thrusters and for the 6.0 used...

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

Hi Screamer,

Thank you for your feedback.

You correctly pointed out my inappropriate tone. I let my frustration come out that these formulas, while simple, represented a huge amount of work in...

Hi again Ola,

I am starting to find this very frustrating, as perhaps you and Ian are finding as well from your perspective. From your last post it is obvious to me that we are on different pages...

Thank you so very much for putting in writing what I have been told so often on the beach.

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

Hi Phill104,

My experience with fin manufacturers has been at both extremes, so I think it is usefull to have some knowledge in addition to their advice.

I agree that there a too many variables...

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

Hi Ola,

I will emphasize again that the formula is not intended for experts. They do not need it. They could use it but it would have to be extended to a more complex matrix. I think that your...

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

Hello Del,
?It was presented as a formula for determing the "minimum required fin area" needed. Dolf, do you have a formula for determining the maximum useful fin area??

I understand your points and do not think that you are looking at this in an elitist way, rather from the perspective of very advanced sailors who are having some memory lapses of...

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

I have seen you sailing and from my perspective your idea of ?just good pure sport sailing? is high speed blasting and running circles around everyone else on the ocean. Is it fair to say...

We seem to have some disagreements, some misunderstandings and some agreements that you seem to see as disagreements. I will try to group my response accordingly.

RE: what fin size for a 6.8m on a S type104

Hi Ian,

I wonder if Starboard published fin area and if you used my formula for required fin area for sail size and sailor weight, how much easier and shorter these discussions would be. But then...

RE: NP on RDM ?

Hi Floyd,

I have used larger sizes of both the Expression and Sabre on RDM's and in all cases I thought that the performance was slightly improved as the sails felt a touch lighter and quicker,...

RE: jp 111 vs evo 90

I use my 5.8 with my E80 and my 5.3 on the E74. Therefore with your specifications if I had only one board I would go with the E80, but since you already have the E74 the E90 should maximize your...

RE: jp 111 vs evo 90

Hi AMZ2003,

With my 83 kg I find the big wide Evo 90 fairly easy to plane so I didn't notice that much difference in that aspect with the JP. I noticed more that the JP's were a bit faster, but...

RE: Kombat 87 or Evo 90?

Hi Surfmeister,

I agree with Scott fron the perspective of a less advanced sailor who also weighs 83 kg and has a strong preference for the waves.

I find the sweet spot for the E92 to be 5.3 -...
