I saw a Kode 80 in wood in the flesh yesterday and I don't think I can contain myself
I'm gonna make the trade - such a compact little board...

Ian,

I just got my Quad 86 and tried it in perhaps too large of conditions for its size (winds were peaking at 30mph). I had some problems getting the board to speed. Do you have any tips on how to unlock its top end?

Do you mean you had problems getting the board to release into "top blasting speed" or did you get stuck already at the planing threshold or just above?

Ola,

I had plenty of power. Too much in fact. I had problems translating the sail power into speed. Seemed like the tail was holding me back. I've sense moved the footstraps back, but haven't gotten a chance to sail it yet. Do you know what configuration works best with the 86?
