Does any body know if the OFO tail measurements are on outside or the inside of the new side cut/cut aways?

Hi Mark

It's the outline so the board have much less wet surface at 30cm.

All the best

Default 107 or 110 Isonic

Hi Remi,

i have sailed the 122 isonic for 5 years and look for a new one next season. Im 80 kg, sail with Point 7 AC 1 7,9 as only slalom sail and want the isonic with the widest wind range for my sail and my weight. Im sailing on lakes like garda, no races, but i love the feeling of racing gear.

I think that 107 or 110 are right for me, which one is the best for me as one-board-one-sail Slalom-Combi? And which fin?

Thanks
Werner

Hi Weber

In your case in fresh water in Guard a Lake, I will recommend the 110 but the 107 will do perfectly the job too. I will say the difference is that 110 is more light wind orientation and 107 medium wind.
Both of them will give you a lot of fun with that sail size.

All the best.

Default Tailkick

Hi Remi,

Last saturday I picked up my 2 new 2014 Isonics (the 107 and 130) and as always.....think most people do :-)... they are situated in the living room for a couple of days. They look great with nice details. I measured them and what wundered me was that the boards didn't had any tailkick. I don't know how the 2013 boards looked like.........i sailed the Fanatic falcons this year which had a little kick and actually the most boards I'm measuring have some slight kick. My knowledge about it is that the board get's loose more.

Can you please tell me what's the reason to do this and what's the effect on the board. As I said maybe it was allready there in the 2013 boards but I don't know that.

Greetings from Mathias (Holland)

Hi Mathias

Correct non of the iSonic have tail Kick but can notice also they are also the much narrow in the tail wet surface.
This replace in better way the tail kick, on top of that tail kick who can be perfect on proto can be a disaster in production. If my perfect proto had for example 3mm tail kick in production he can be 0 to 5 or 6 mm and this have very negative effect on the board.
so since some years I eliminate progressively completely tail kick on all iSonic but not only.
It make me work in different way and play a lot with outline and tuck like to find the perfect balance.
Basically better to play with this than tail kick to fix the rocker.
hope this help and let us know after your test what you feel about them.
Have fun
All the best

Dear Remi,

Thanks for the reaction. So actually you can't entirely design/make an ultimate board because of the limitations of the production proces.

That makes me curious. If you didn't had these limitations and it would be possible to ad some tailkick..........would you do it in the 107 & 130, having in mind that the rest stays the same?

This weekend there is some wind predicted............really curious what speeds they achieve.

Aloha.

Greetings from they other side of the world.....

Hi Mathias

I will not come back to tail kick because discover that is better to work with out line and tuck line to get more performances but also a more smooth board unless I discover something new. Development have to keep your mind open for anything.
Have fun this week end.
All the best
