Evo 80 and Tushingham sail?
I am 75 kg - sailing a 80 liter evo 2007 and Tushingham sails.
My favorite wave sail is the New 2008 Tushingham Rock 5,3 - but ofte I needs a 5,7.
At my home break all waves are generated by the wind - meaning that 5,8 weather would make waves up to max 1 meter/ 3 feet - and not very powerfull - but the can be fun and very rideable anyway.
Last year I did buy the new version of the Storm in 5,75, (coming from the old Storm series - that was ok in small waves.) - The new Storm feels much more dedicated freeride.
I set the new storm normally - with a good deal of downhaul and some outhaul - but not thight.
Anyway - I am not totally happy going out through the wave break in 5,8 weather, since jumping feels like I am having a big sail and out of controle springs to mind. Side shore riding is actually ok, when I am on the wave - Onshore riding gets backwindet easily.
Would any of you be able to give an advice on - if you think I can tune the Storm 2007 to to perform well in the Danish 5,8 "waves"?
Or should I change the sail for a Rock 5,7 or would the Wedge possible be the best 5,7 weapon for me for the Evo 80.
Thanks in advance
