That's extremely fast, Crazyed.

I didn't know it was possibe to do 64 km/h (35 knots) with a 10m2 sail.

A lot of surfers don't even get to 35 knots on smaller sails & boards.

It must have been really flat water.

BelSkorpio,

When speedsurfing.com had a formula ranking (no more), there were a couple of guys that broke 30 knots with 10 or 11 meter sails. I seem to recall the top speed was around 32 knots.

35 knots is believable with an US147, but few of us could pull it off. Crazyed is big enough to do it. I only weigh 77kg and in my earlier formula sailing days, I set a goal of breaking 30 knots (started carrying a GPS on all my outings beginning in 2005). My best was in 2007 and was 28.3 knots on a 7.6 sail on a F147. I am just not heavy enough to go super fast on any board. The big guys have an advantage here.

Will a smaller fin (in addition to the Drake R 13 58 coming with the board) extend the wind range (more control in more wind)using the same sail(9.2 turbo)?

A big fin for light wind and a small fin for higher wind-using the same sail?

The best you can get .
I bought a 11mtr formulasail but never used it , I hope in the coming months to tested it with the 11 mtr.

Have good winds
Hans,

Are you from the Netherlands I quit interested to see the board live, if so could you indicate were you surf? As there are only 10 boards sold in 2011 in the Netherlands it is quit difficult to see it in real and in action.

Regards,

Perry

Thank you Hans. Sailboarder firstly 1600 buys you a mid of the road mountain bike whereas 1550 is the top end of our sport and as we used to get a nice screwdriver with every Starboard I was wondering why I didn't get one. Did you get a set of allen keys the last time you bought that brand of bike?????

Hans/Crazed,

Houden jullie de snelheid bij op de GPS?

Hans, ben ook regelmatig te vinden bij de Kabbelaarsbank op het Grevelingenmeer, is het mogelijk een keer bij jouw te komen kijken? heb je trouwens de carbon of de wood versie?

Groet,

Perry
