One more question for you guys what is your reconmendation on sail make to go for. Gaastra Vapour, Red Code Severne, Or Neilpryde RS RACING.

I think all those brands are good, plus few more like North,Maui Sails,..., so it's what you like in the sail, personal preferance, availability, etc... Any could win you a race.

And to Unregirestered, if you heavy go for one, if not, o reason to buy 2 boards unless
your weight goes up and down 50kg

I may have missed this, but does the two new Formula boards have inserts for two chicken straps or just one on the centerline. I see where the new Exocet formula board has inserts for two offest straps from the centerline as does the Mike Z boards. And I see where some folks in high wind places have added those inserts later.

Post #30
"What I am reading is that in order to be competitive I will need 2 formula boards next season.
1 for lightwind and 1 for hi wind???
The point of the FW class rules that put boards on a 2 year cycle was to eliminate things like this and make formula easier to get into."


Poster #30, you do NOT need two boards to be competitive.

The option to have two boards is not new.
During 2008-2009 anyone could have two boards say a F2 Z (for light wind) and a 162 (for high wind).
Starboard i believe want to make Formula attractive to both Heavy and light weight racers, who want to ride Starboard.

Hi Unregistered,

We make a board for light riders and heavy one to make satisfy all and give a chance to all to be competitive despit thei weight. Now is only up to you if you want to buy 2 boards, but as far I know their is no change on this since the beguining of the Formula. The rules say only one board for the event.

All the best

Default Lwr or hwr

Hi,

I am thinking of buying formula board. I am 172/76kg. Now I ride Angulo Magnum/Naish Redline. Which board would you suggest LWR or HWR. I mostly sail up to 22knots.
Please advise as I am a little confused with the choice. As always more choice more problems :-)

regards

Greg

All the best

Hi Greg,

At your weight both can work but the LWR is less physical and more easy, so better to choose the LWR.

All the best
