My Equipe is the first model, and actually the same board as the OD, just lighter. I'm glad to hear that the OD did quite well.
In 35 knots I (95 kgs) won't even be on my iSonic 122, but probably on my Aero with a 4.7 ;-)
I think that Starboard have done some developement in rocker and bottom design to get the Phantom flying i higher winds. Starboard are quite experts in this area. Anyway flying on a 380 cm long board in + 20 knots is a discipline in itself.

if you didn't see it already.. Cool...
Tomorrow I will go out to try my Equipe in a promised 10 knots of wind and sunshine, quite nice on a 56 northern latitude.
