Here is a film including Starboard US 147 and also some comments at the bottom of the site.
I got my US 147 one week ago, waiting for wind...

Hi MOP,

Still no wind for the US147 ?
We are all dying to read your comments.

I'm the guy who made the video that MOP posted. Absolutely loved the UltraSonic 147. Lots nicer feel than the JP SLW, which I thought was under-finned and not particularly fast or comfortable. The biggest sail I used on the UltraSonic was an 8.5, but I think it would be fine with a 10 or 11. Also tons of fun with a 7.5. Very capable upwind and driving off the fin, but still smooth and fast on a reach like a slalom / freeride board.

Hi James,

I don't see any US147 in action on your video's or am I mistaken ?

It's nice to hear that the US147 is also still fun with relatively small sails like 8.5 and 7.5.

It makes me wonder if I should change in the future my 4-board quiver for a 3-board quiver, i.e.

replace the IS87/IS101/IS122/F161 combination by the following combination IS87/IS107/IS147.

After all, it's 1 board less and probably the same fun.

The video with the US147 is here: http://vimeo.com/21717392

I only have a little bit of footage of it, unfortunately.

Last weekend, I've seen the US147 (carbon version) for the first time live in action.
The guy was using it in 17-24 knot conditions with a 6.x m2.
He said that even in these conditions the board is very stable (no flying off the water).
I hope I can borrow it once and try it with a 10+ sail.
