Per, that was pretty much the thinking behind the hybrids. But somehow they ended up over weight to the extent they always feel a bit stuck to the water until it's blowing pretty big time. I use a Gsport Lifter in these conditions and am pretty happy with that. But it needs a fairly wide board which inevitably does not go well in displacement mode. Needs wings like a skiff on something narrower ?
Why not get a raceboard ? Well they're great but when the wind gets up it seems pretty silly not to be able to fly the fin upwind on a dedicated course racer. Plus the they tack like a catamaran (reluctantly)
