Default RE: Formula or isonic 155 for max speed ?

Now that most of the proper high speed winds have left the UK & wont re-appear till the autum, a few of us are trying to climb the GPS-Speeding.com Formula rankings. Although they are basically course racing boards, formula boards are real quick (and fun) of the wind. Today, I'v added a formula session at GPS-SS for 5 x 10'sec average @ 29.2 knots, max display 30.5k & software max @ 31.3 knots. Not fast compaired to speed or slalom boards but on a 100cm wide board, the sensations are like a zillion miles per hour and it is fast enough to put me 3rd in the formual rankings (did a cart-wheel in the garden when I worked it out). Keep't switching between a C3 E 67cm & a Select Ultra 58cm, neither where right for this day. So I'v just bought a Deb 63cm tonight to make sure I'm covered for the next formula session. I had 32 knots on the dial last year, but was'nt using GPS-SS then, so I cant prove it. I'm confident that these boards could, on the right day do 33/34 knots. Only problem is that, to do these sort of speeds, you need low to mid twenty knot winds & you could be on something much smaller/sleeker so it means missing out on a good slalom board session. Today, I could have been hitting mid 30's on my Sonic 100/7.6m Warp, but I did'nt take it with me to avoid temptation as the formula rankings was on my mind.

Cheers
