Hi,
Great looking! Straps seem to be very forward, what is the goal?
See you!

Good point ! I will try it and then i will let you know. My opinion so far is that maybe- i say maybe, with this configuration the rider can go better in lightwind. But for sure i cannot say anything more about the board right now. I have to try it first (that will be tomorow - i hope - right now the weather here in northern Greece Thessaloniki/Makedonia is totally fubar).
The biggest benefit are the u.s. boxes. So you can move the fins forward or backward depending on the condition - lighter winds - stronger winds.

soon i will know how this baby works...

Yes PAFF,


Bigger fins need way stronger legs. I am taking it easy . Now i use 23 front & 22 cm back.
But the secret to be faster is elsewhere...

1) (for now) the board doesnt need any bigger fins.
2) The Nomad raceboard is FAST and needs ALOT of training. Its like a racing car that you have to learn to drive. Specialy downwind- because it can get VERY fast - and i mean VERY fast.
3) Upwind : Its like a joke (i mean train) . Easy.
4) i love it - because it will take some time to get use to it and juice it up 100%
5) It needs strong and stable legs -feet.
