Many sailing days are always better than new gear, so way to go Karl. Regarding gear, I personally always try to give my honest opinion. I think that is the best thing in the long run. And in this case I fully stand by my "excitedness". In a sense though, I think the twinsers was even more exciting as far as development goes, but as a "gear adviser" the Quads are more exciting because I think they will be good boards for a wider selection of riders.
Mim: Yes, that's a problem for 2010. I guess a Quad 100 would be possible but I have no idea if that something that is planned. Hold on to the EVO 100! (And if it in the future starts to bore you you can always convert it to quad or thrusters).
