    Good boards. They follow their own trend not very comparable to the rest of the herd.

    That looks like a Free Diamond 70 which is indeed about a 12 year old design.
    I think I had one in another size.


    Nothing wrong with older boards but watch out they make you sail in a different way than newer kit.
    The board will be up to 280 long and so will not turn easily and may have the mast track a bit far forwards – meaning you sail with more mast rake.

    Give it a go.
    Now back in the UK.

    From the picture you linked that looks like a Free Diamond 70. 129l 280*69. That might be a bit big for what you need, hopefully its a G-ride instead. Their 'convertibles' from around the time were very good boards, I cant remember if they were pre or post 2000.

    I had a couple of AHD freerace/slalom boards from around 2000 and they were quick and relatively easy to gybe.

    I'm sure one of the Poole Hamworthy Park crew still has a Free Diamond of some description.

    Edit Basher beat me to it!

    Well the AHD convertible 267 from 1994 had a couple of extra fins..........





    Just found out my AHD 275 was from 1996! Its hanging from the rafters in the garage so I might get it down and take it for a blast sometime soon to see how it compares against my Exocet freeride.

    That looks like a Max Ride 62 (103 litres), I used to have one as a light wind small board as they were wide for there time and planed early, but sailed in a slightly unique way due to a single concave running the length of the board which meant it didn't like fins too small (30cm freeride was about right). Used mine with a Gaastra 6m netwave back then. Quite liked it and it will be fine for learning how to sail a 100l board.

    Just had another look at the tiny pic and as others have said it looks like a Free Diamond with the double back straps.
