    OOOoo that looks nice, that black edging makes the tail look narrow and drawn, where are you going to ride it?

    What do they call it?

    Beautiful.

    Longer and narrower. Give it time...it'll be the new short and wide.

    ok I just arrived from a nearly five hour drive.

    Graeme (The Legend), lets not pretend, I'm unlikely to use it anywhere where the board was designed for! Ha!
    But: the plan is to make it my travelling board as it is unlikely that I'll find one to buy on the other side of "da big pond" and have one here and one over there as I like to do.
    If I manage to take holidays before the end of the year it'll be south America. If not, sadly it'll have to be the Caribbean later in our winter.

    The pictures and the website don't do it justice. The graphics are sooo much prettier with more detail than one can see and a transparent hybrid carbon matting.

    Yes, it is that one Max. My good friends at Boardwise chased it for me, last one in Europe.

    It may not hold me back maybe. It is wider than my old McKercher Stbd wave 77 and I do alright with that one the dozen or less times a year I get to use it in this area.
    Clearly it'll be more comfortable than my Sean Ordonez 66 shape that I wouldn't be able to compare since it's been a year since I was in the conditions that that one needs.


    This is my first multifin since building my own shapes back mid-eighties. I think it may be better but would have to get back to you on that!

    Should anyone be interested I can take some measurements Mast to front strap to fins centre etc.

    Than you. Well it all goes in cycles doesn't it? in the later eighties and mid-nineties we went to narrow and no-nose then someone figured out that wider boards were necessary for ease of learning but likely also for the aging windsurfing population...

    What decided me to take the leap is that I read an interview where Robby said he was not going to continue this board. So as this style is not your usual one I thought, "what the heck! I'll get it".

    I never quite left the narrow and longish so hopefully the adaptation to it might be short...

    I'll take some detailed pictures tomorrow.

    Glad you guys are enthusiastic about it.

    Cheers
    El Robby (oops! something is getting to my head!)

    lucky guy - sounds you're really stoked by your new toy

    think we had this already - good review:

    "Before I caught my first wave, I did a slam jibe and the board turned 180 degrees on the smallest radius - I was so surprised how quick it turned! When you catch the first wave, the board feels so agile, that you think you should better a bit cautious and as a result your bottom turn will be way too long and slow. Second time on the wave you remember, thin rails, thruster setup, wing pin tail, this is more than enough to commit to the turn 100% and to go full speed on the rail in the bottom turn for a good smack! The rails and side fins bite and you are under control all the way through then, cutback & immediate release on the critical section if you want. It really works and the redirection back into the next bottom turn is fantastic, when you hit the lip!"
