RE: evo 80 07
Yeah, maxing margaret river in windy cross off I go the acid 80 where I have to contain speed.
Hookipa as well I've sometimes opted for it. But as soon as I need to generate speed out of a bottom turn or to come up more vertiocally I'm straight back onto the evo. The 07 evo 80 definitely handles high wind side off stuff better than it's predescessor though.
Would be a great board for Ireland I reckon.
