perhaps now with a bigshot like BD Severne could gain a few places on the PWA slalom circuit. The guys in the top ten are always bigshots in multiple diciplines. BD, AA, KP, Matt Pritchard, Peter Volwater, these guys won multiple diciplines in their career but none are sailing (to this day) with Severne but they dominate top 10 on the slalom cicuit.

I'd like to ride Severnes, but even on second hand market they turn out quite expensive ... looking at a few code reds none the less

Default Severne

Definetely not cheap but fine. Light, good qulity, inovation...trimming exactly as the guide says, looks nice.

And on the water it is perfect I like all of them...

3x S-1 (4.3, 5.0, 5.9)
NCX 7.0
Element 8.5

all 2008.

Money is not everything...they need some movement.

Ciao Michal.

PS: Looking forward to see them not only in top ten on PWA circuit but on the highest place!!!

CR? Dont forget to buy a lot of spare masts (for each sail), and dont go more than a few hundred metres from the beach unless you are a good swimmer or have a rescue boat ready.

Hi guys,
I canīt write about Formula mast lenghts, but my Slalom masts from Severne were really strong. All over the season, flying and competing at 6 PWA events, using the masts, for instance the 460 red line for travel trips and trainingssessions, really mast one SDM of 7 masts broke.
in the small sizes I used Blue line masts in 400 and 430, no spare and they were super strong, rigging them in Pozo or Fuerteventura. One 460 broke, but had this mast on so many trips in the bags and inside different sails (Code Red, Gator, Glide). No 490 broke and used them for sure more than 50 times on the 9,0.
Sure, sometimes masts can break, when they get heated up a lot.

Chris

I am looking forward for 2009 season. Let's see who will be better: AA on a new board or BD with new sails.

I am of course on the side of BD (since he is on my favourite gear).

Ciao Michal.

Just have to change the slogan, I propose "sails for the retirement" to replace "sails for the revolution"

Default well...

a bit offensive don't you think...
Remember,
you think you can do better, go a prove it!
Otherwise, wait for the forst results. And even if BD will not be top 3 i don't care for me Severne has something...

Btw. what sails are you riding?
