Look on the webpage from Nomad and you can easily see, that the available RRD raceboard was made last year by Nomad. For this reason I think that you get an evolution model from Nomad only directly from Nomad.
It takes a long time from the development over production in china to the distributors and then into the shops. There are only a few shapers outside that know how to make a competitive raceboard, Simon from Nomad is one of them. This is proofed by the success of Kari Schibevaag and many other competitors. When you purchase a board directly from Nomad you get a proven design almost a year earlier.

Hola Mestre,

unless you are a very serious racer (you need to test & try new fin set ups, new widths, etc..) then go for the Sector 60....amazing performance upwind and downwind, easy to ride (= you can ride longer)

Dedicated race boards that are one year old (Monaro V1, North LTD, ...) are really too old ( they are too narrow= low planning, have just two fins= do not reach upwind or they are too long = bounce too much ) and in general they are too technical to get the best of them...in my opinion.

DISCLAIMERS:
- I have NOT tested the new Monaro V2, only the first Monaro and although it is a very friendly race board, it is too narrow, two fins only and worse than the Sector 60 by far....with the Sector 60 + long lines (35m) and 13.5m Kahoona and my 90 Kg I was kiting in 7 knots...and I'm NOT an experienced kiteracer.
- I have NOT tested the new North race

a reveure Mestre !

You can see $1700 Aus quoted as the price of the Cabrinha boards here.

http://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/topi ... erms=$1700

Raceboards may seem expensive compared to quad fin waveboards, but they are much cheaper than these quad fin windsurf boards, which the raceboards often have the same sandwich construction as.
