Default Thank you Starboard!

I got the 2010 iSonic 121 last week and took it out yesterday for the first time in a gusty 16-18 kts wind, short, hard chop on the water... after the first run I had to conclude the board did not meet my high expectations.... it exceeded them by a mile!

This is my first Starboard board and I wonder why I did not get one earier. I don't know what voodoo or mumbo-jumbo you put into it, but the isonic sailed as if there was no chop. And it did not matter whether upwind or going deep, it just kept going fast, remaining controllable and comfortable.

And best of all, it didn't care that much being ridden by an intermediate surfer with heavy feet, but it did let me know there's a hell of lot more potential to be had and I can't wait to let it all out.

So thank you all at Starboard for producing this voodoo board.

Best regards,

Joules

ps; the board would be 100% perfect if it could make me a nice hot espresso whilst going deep downwind :-)

Sounds awesome, iSonics are definately one of my dream boards, for the moment I prefer to practice on my second hand equipment so I'm not worried about damaging it/price.

How long have you been windsurfing? What sail were you using? Also, how much do you weigh?

Thanks,

Adrien G

Hi Adrien,

I picked up surfing again last year, after 18 yrs. Before that I had surfed for 8 years, F2 Sunset Slalom and Lighting :-).

I used a NP V8 8m on the iSonic 121 and I weigh 73 kg. The vin was a Select Pro Slam 45cm, I have 2 Select SL9 on order (37 and 43cm). I have a NP V8 6.5 for higher wind, but I expect the board will remain predictable, no matter what.

Hi all,
must really post my first impressions on the 2010 production iSONICs. Just stayed at Fuerteventura/ Sotavento thi sweek and sailed on the 94, 101, 111 and 121. Was really impressed, especially by the 111.

All the best,
Chris
