    Interesting to see how it performs long term. I am sure DT is strong enough, just not so sure about the tampering options so far.

    until they start riding the boards canted over with narrower tails and rear strap positions closer to the centre line boxes will keep breaking.

    if you can ride like that then the mast and the box are in vertical compression rather than under a constant sideways load

    Kites figured it out , moths figured it out, Windsurfing it just refusing to listen.

    Surely in a place like this, who wouldn’t want to have a go?

    Looks like more than enough wind for my largest kit, 8.5m & 125l/80cm board.

    Yes Phil, that’s what you should be on then, big kit. No need to glide with anything smaller.

    Big kit above the water, small kit underneath, 46cm. I'm not against foiling, I might try it when they have developed it further.
    I suspect it will be more specialist boards.
    Around here a foil wouldnt be the best choice for each session as depth due to tide & shorebreak varies depending on wind direction. Around Christmas time I watch Guy Cribb launching on a foil, he didnt just hop on and sail off like his mate on a JP FSW did.

    Someone was selling the same board I have, 2004 Exocet S4, on FB lastweek, the finbox was broken due to foiling.
