Very old sails => RSR
More power than EVO II & ( ultra ) Limited...
Poor Micah with his new sails....

I heard that A² had Kashy the first day & Ifju the second ( not confirmed )

Default Formula boards

Hi,
seems that everyone in the forum is too focused on JP x Starboard (the latter one is obvious).

But Patrik Diethelm boards have won 3 out of the 4 formula races this year. Sure Paulo dos Reis is an amazing formula racer, but still, the board has to be good. Has someone tried it? Someone tried their slalom boards?

Just like with *board, each model year formula is diff, same with F2 and DP, I 've talked
to couple of guys that used F2 before and now riding DP there's noticeable diff and progression in shape...,planes earlier, etc... with ML vs JP - again I talked to guys that use them, the diff from what I understand should be minimal, if i had to pick I would get ML
just because I know the quality would be the best, but JP looked real nice and light too

But, bottom line - all new FW boards could win, it's the rider!

Everyone seems to be focused on the boards. Over the years, AA has changed from AHD to Starboard and now JP but he did not change his sail sponsor. Could it be the sail that made the difference or maybe it is just AA and nothing else? I'm not a great fan of NP sail in fact I'm boycotting this brand because they have (had) some serious quality issues with their masts and also for the fact that its rich and powerful boss was able to manipulate the selection of the Olympic board (so i heard). Hence, I'll say it's not the board but AA himself who made the difference. The rest is just marketing.

A² makes the différence...

Remenber that he won his first title with an Olllllllld AHD

He can take bigger sails than all other racers ( 3 years old RSR for instance )

Hi Papounet,

I'm curious, what's the largest sail size that AA was using in Argentina. Do you know ?
