I used to take the nose off all my boards until i trained myself to always let go of the back hand and never let go of the front. My Dialer 145l is intact....for now...

I think the bulb nose prevents the nose from diving. Looks very very short. Back foot is out of the straps 95% of the time.

Those boards are crazy, around 85 L for hers and 90 ish for his.
most of the time she (Emily) was 3.7 m2 !

I did a bit of digging. From video discussion.
Thanks!!! Wind was about 20 to 25mph even though it looks lighter in the video. I was on a 3.7m Goya Fringe and weigh 165lbs. Emily is on a 2.8m Goya Fringe. I am riding a 112cm foil mast and Emily is on a 101cm foil mast.


Thanks! It's a prototype Slingshot board, Tony Logosz design. It is 4'2" long and 101 Liters.


Fin sailing for me would have been 5.2@20 and 4.6@25 and 95 or 85L.

If you have an SS I84/I76/I65 and flying happily. Please list the biggest/smallest sail used, wind speed, body weight (birthday suit), board size/width/box PB,T, US Box-2. Thanks and Cheers.
10 knots = 11.512 mph

I have a similar survey in the AU forum; I gather the results in a week.

Example:
7.5M, 12knots, 70kg, 135L/70x255/PB/ I84
3.2M, 22knots, 70kg, 125L/80x75/T/I65
