Re: Why the long depower rope??

Hey y'all. First off thanks for noticing the details of our racing techniques. I've been using this downhaul system since 1999... It's pretty much awesome if you set it up right and know how to use it. All of you are all right, but with many key details left out. The video posted above is wrong. Clo...

Re: How to find the optimal racing position on your raceboar

Foot strap positioning is like the type of underwear you prefer... boxers, tighty whiteys, boxer briefs, hot pants, thongs... personally I don't wear any. but I do use foot straps downwind... even if you do have straps on your board now, move your feet around a bit and where you feel best move them ...

Re: A Twintip that can keep up with Directionals

Whoa there cowboy. No disrespect intended. I just wouldn't think it fair for people to run out expecting that this style of board would be competitive as your post implied. Conversely, I like the idea of this style of board and can even see room for another class of racing evolving with it. Keep up...
