- how would you compare the turning/manouverability of the abovementioned boards?
- I have to learn to jibe: is the V3 60 board difficult to learn on?
Thanks again in advance!!!
No sure if anyone tried to answer this directly...
- V3 60 is more efficient than the V2 (one design). It slips through the ware noticeably more easily, but it can be said that it is more technical to ride, though I did not think so.. compared to a race board the are so much easier!
- the turning and manoeuvrability is almost the same though the V3 is more efficient and seems not to scrub off speed in carve as much as the V2 does..
- learning to gybe is easy with a few pointers, and both boards are as easy as each other. Perhaps the V2 is a little more solid underfoot, but it's of marginal help - only when you really are in the first few minutes of learning...
What is interesting is that you can change fins on the V3 to change how the boards handle. I found 3 fins works better in chop and 4 fins in very light and flat water.. It also changes how they feel underfoot.. a personal preference thing more than right and wrong...
