    Hi

    Having double footstrap screws is a massive plus too...bit out of touch as I have not owned a production for years but I think they all use single screws.

    There are double screws on the back straps of all my Starboard wave boards.
    Now back in the UK.

    Fantastic. You must sleep very well at nights with that in mind.

    This thread has become very interesting. I wish someone would do a durability and longevity test. This to me is just as important as to how the board sails given the price of boards. If I knew the board offered good protection from catapults and general ding testing then that would also swing my decision. Board tests always focus on the sailing characteristics of the board and not the durability.

    Because even if its the best construction, a board that doesnt suit performance wise the needs nobody, likes.
    But more atention for durability would be nice.

    Being as its hard enough to get a board test of any sort these days, getting them to include a durability and longevity test would seem next to impossible.
