when is the first race either KPWT, PKRA or SF?

Will be interesting what the guys are up to. The board plays a very important role here!

The first race in SF was supposed to be last week. It was canceled due to weird weather. Next up is April 23rd. Unfortunately I don't expect we'll see these European designs. In terms of numbers here we will have mostly Ocean Rodeo, Windydevil, Nils, and Prisoner of Wind (Kafka). There will also be at least a couple of Zychek (sp?) boards, and perhaps some surprises come race day. We've never seen a North on the course here, but maybe we will this year.

Cheers,

Evan

I wouldn't be posting pictures if those were my boards!!! They didnt get any better the 2nd time.
Actually I think Bruno and Paolo will be flying in from France and Maui again this saturday to prepare for Thursdays race. I would promise pictures but don't think everybody including me just want their designs thrown out on the net like that.

Evan:
actually, Sky and Ken used their protos last year in one on the Cabrinha Races, and then the north team used some of the first at the nationals. But you are correct, I have not seen any production LTD boards purchased and used locally; not even by the north racers.

I assume the North board is not for the top riders...since it is already a year old in design..good for normal riders who want a race board, and don't wait or look to far.

Top riders will always ride custom I assume...
