Gybing is easy but timing in flipping over the sail is quite important, he board doesn´t easily fall out the plane.
Did not use a GPS today, but i´m sure this board will throw a shadow on last years sessions with the ´old´ futura 101 2008...
I´m a happy man!
You'll be very happy with the 101! I have a 111/2008 and I could not be more happy with it. It is a biggish board for my weight (70Kg) but I like it so much that I find myself using it a lot: best slalom board I have owned for sure. I now use a Talon 40 with it and it brought up performance a real notch in respect to the Drake it originally came with. It was a good choice not to provide a fin in 2010. As you say: easy, ultra-stable, and fast.
