the RS7 is a board i hear little about and cannot find it listed in US not Canada
glad you have shared info on it !!!!!
No experience with the SLW92, I have read that it can be pretty fast in the right conditions. Since its positioned more towards the intermediate sailor by JP with an outline a bit like a formula, it was not what I was looking for in a super lightwind slalom board.

Maybe one day the PWA will see sense and allow these 90cm+ wide slalom boards in competition. Far less cancelled heats and sitting on the beach as they push the wind minimums lower, which can't be bad for the sponsors
