Slalom versus long-distance
On the French WindSurfJournal.com website, Antoine Albeau presents his 'toys', and inthere, he groups his iSonic slalom boards in two categories:
-> iSonic 133, 111 and 97 for PWA slalom
-> iSonic 122, 101 and 84 for the (mainly national French) long distance circuit
Is there any specific technical difference in the boardshapes that would make one or the other better for (short) figure-8 slalom versus long-distance races?
