Iv'e had the same feeling when I get a newer model. But I always sail with a GPS, this usually shows that Im going the same speeds or faster on the newer kit.

Some times when you have more control, you feel slower/easier/less physical, but the GPS shows Im usually going a bit quicker/or at least the same speeds.

On the basis that more control is fastest, SB have spent a lot of time making their boards with better/easier control compared to slalom from 10-years ago (even when c/w Sonic from 5 or 6-years ago).

Plus, don't forget that we all get a bit better each month or so. So your probably a better sailor from when you had your 07 iS101 so it all feels less fast and more easy
