Default End of Reign or just a mistake ?

A lot FW 162 on the second hand market...
Light & Medium starboard racers searching for 160 & 161
5 BM ( not B&M ) in the 7 first boards on the French FW tour !

But AČ will win the world 2008/2009 championships, the board is for him (-;

Hmm. I have yet to see a used 162 for sale. While I did not use the 161 I am very very happy with my 162, currently faster and getting better angle than with my 160 even without being fully trimmed yet.

That said it'll be fun to see the first real international sail-off between the WF08 and the others. Judging from the results in Portugal with F2, Gaastra and SB all in top-3 it seems are already more choices for those buying their own boards than last year; and that is a good thing. Hopefully the WF08 is also up there.

Perhaps it is best not to respond but these kind of post start to get a bit frustrating.

Cool

Just see it from an other perspective:

In Holland there was Formula racing for th edutch title and guess what:
1. F2 2008 and newest Maui sails 2008,
2. F2 2005 and North (I guess 2008)
3. *brd 162 with Neil Pryde racing
4. F2 2005 and maui sails 2007,
5. Fanatic 2004? or 2005 and North 2008,
6. F2 2008 and Maui sails 2008,
7. F2 2005 and Gaastra 2008
8. F2 2008 and Maui 2008
9. *board 161 and North 2008,

Remember, it is in the indian not in the arrow. Just ask Steve Bodner about the level of competition in Holland. Just stop these nonsense posts and start training and tuning. You can almost win with any of the sails and boards of the last 54 years. Train trim tune and surf the water (instead of the net ? ) Anyway have fun doing what ever it is you like.

Just my two cents.

Hummmm....
The same response then Fanatic in the beginning of 2005.
After a few weeks, Steve Allen takes the 2004 for the season and Fanatic said OK you'r wright, bad toy...

Starboard mades the best market FW during 5 years, starting with the F147.
Easy to use for all kind of people, fun and performing.
It seems that the new one is'nt a bad toy, but reserved for very big guys.
