Yes I was wanting to get a smaller board once I've nailed my carve gybes (being an ex-sailor I have a boat to sell = money for windsurf kit!) But I can't really justify it at this stage!
Does it matter how curved it is, i.e. is the reason for the recommended Drake Freeslalom Swift that the board is designed for the centre of effort to be in the right place? Or does this not matter too much? I've heard they're not great fins - maybe a Choco Spirit 32 or a Prolimit Freemove 30 or 33?
