Hi Johnk,
In my experience, it works pretty much the same on all boards.
I do remember that it's a little less effective on the superwide (=> 90 cm)
but it still should work.
What size rig are you using?
Also, you need to get well off the centerline on the wider board to get the same
roll angle due to the extra width.
The very short waterline length on the true formula board and a pretty flat rockerline
may be why they don't respond as well as narrower boards.
Try tipping your Techno formula even more, stay more forward on the board to get the rocker near the nose and mid section to "bite" a little better.
Also, what sail and rig size are you using?
