The Windsurf review was more or less meaningless. All the boards were quoted as being great for a large number of sailors in just about every condition. They totally missed out on the fact that readers want to know what makes a board special and different compared to another brand.
I agree with you.

I have a certain sympathy with manufactures when they receive a test report they feel is unfair.

After all a lot of time, money and effort goes into bringing a board to market.

However there comes a time when to carry on a test ban starts to work against a brand.

Like you I was looking forward to the ET being tested in Boards.

I am sure we are not the only ones who were disappointed that Starboard asked Boards magazine not to test their board.

I feel the recent Boards magazine wave board test was fair and balanced and I can only hope that Starboard now reconsider their position.
