Default RE: Apollo Vs F161


Thanks for sharing some of the Apollo's secrets with us.

Being crazy of ultra light wind planing, I have 3 questions :

1) Assuming the minimum planing threshold for a FW board is 6 knots of wind, are you really able to make the Apollo planing with as low as 4 knots of wind ? Is that correct ?
2) Would a 80 cm fin be able to lower the planing threshold even further or not ?
3) What top board speed are you able to reach : 8, 10, 12, 16 knots, i.e., twice to 4 time the wind speed ?

Cheers !
