Four fin, twin fin, single fin? Surfboard shape like Manu? What do
you like the most personaly at this point after the big surf
The wave sailing with kites is actually surpassing windsurfing
wavesailing in Santa Cruz California and I imagine as well Austailia.
Guys are coming off the bottom harder and smacking the lip
with more force than they ever did wavesailing. This is why
many of us got into the kitesurfing in light wind areas. To
surf the waves in the light stuff as well as the heavy wind.
tends to lean toward directional for down the line drive. Been
experimenting with twin tips with very thin, sharp rails, pulled in
nose and tails and multiple fins fore and aft. As you won the Cabo
Verde wave contest you probably have seen most of the ideas tried and
have settled on a good wave compromise for yourself. Thanks for the
info on the Slider as well. It really cleared the subject up.
