Wojtek is on current fins... he's using Kashy's.

I think its kind of cool that someone can (potentially) win a World Title on superceded gear. Yes, its bad for the marketing of the current gear, but it also shows that there's no reason people should be intimidated to start FW racing because they don't want to buy the newest equipment. A second hand F161 from last year and sails from 3 seasons back are quite adequate ... Steve was 2nd last year at the World's using a superceded F160...

Interesting to note that almost all the Starboard teamriders in the Top 20 are using the FWOD version of the F162. It's heavier, with the extra paint on the bottom, but it doesn't appear to be any slower than the normal F162...
