Default These forums are now DEAD! Where to ask now?

The Starboard forums used to be the best windsurfing place for answering any windsurfing query, no matter how advanced, funny, basic or crazy.

After the change to the 07 format and the requirement for registration, these forums are basically dead.

Posts don't get answered for days! And then usually only a handful of replies. Surely Starboard, in hindsight, the decision to modify the forums is regrettable.

So are there any other good popular windsurfing forums with a lively fun range of replies?

Fanatic's forum is absolutely excellent and very professional...check out Craig's response, they are very comprehensive and helpful!

Yes .. Craig is great ... but only really at Fanatic questions. What if I have a question about comparing a North sail to a Sailworks sail? Or comparing a JP to a Mistral?

The SB forum used to be great for that but not anymore. There must be some other good windsurfing forums around?

The magic is gone and I was sad to see it go.
However my shopping list will be shorter and my bank balance will be better.
One persons loss is another's gain.

yeah, *b forum just isn't what it used to be.

They even called off the wet T-shirt contest (or did some bimbo win March's contest?).

Also have the impression Roger's brain/heart is partially "offline", some of his recent posts are not all too precise/correct (polite phrasing).

Hi "Guest"

OK, please somebody has to explain to these two that "Guest" is not a registered name but a generic one for anybody who hasn't signed in to post here
