where do you want to be to carry speed through a jibe on a 125 hyper as compared with a flat bottom board? there is a lot of chop where i sail and the hyper cuts through well but the isonics may jibe better?
also, is there a reason that manufacturers don't publish information about which boards are actually ridden in various events? is it because they are actually all prototypes? obviously formula is an exception but the 42 slalom info would be interesting to know, not just what was registered but what was actually ridden.
