Thumbs up

Very fast and lively when powered up. Technical to ride because of the asymmetrical volume distribution and kind-of thick rails in the tail. I have a 295 that doesn't get used much anymore (left it at my Uncle's house on the beach so it's there when I visit). For several years, NOBODY passed me when riding the 295. I suspect a 288 is good for 7.0-7.5 or so down to whatever you can hold on the water. The 295 was rated from 9.0 to 7.0; I was able to squeeze 6.5 out of her. It will respond well to pumping the sail / board / fin. The volume of my 295 was 113, I think; 288 is probably ~100 L. Good luck.
