I don't doubt that the original Evo 74 can be improved upon Ola. Some the later models did so, but some did not, and were roundly critisized.

It's easy to forget that one of the great features of the original 74 was its comparitive ease of use over the older trad wave boards. All the tests at the time emphasised this point, which allowed us ordinary wave sailors to up our game. It rightly set a trend, and was a success.

Doesn't the same hold true today. Isn't the Evos market to help ease improving windsurfers into the wave environment, just as it did in the past? Making it more extreme and giving it a silly name seems to me to be missing the point of the concept!

Give aspiring wave riders a good basic accessible proven board, and let them provide the I.Q.
