all 4 team members raced with this board at the pkra thailand, they did very well, u can see pics of the board on day 6 in the podium pics. cannot find this board for sale anywhere on the net. how can they say it is production?????
Is it 50 boards they have to sell to qualify?
If so, I guess North has the money to produce and 'sell' those in a hurry.
The board Steph Bridge is standing behind looks huge, so I guess that is what a 70cm board looks like?
The boards look like good shapes, and three fins seems to be gaining in popularity, but the 70 cm decision on width looks like overkill to me, just judging by the look of it. Maybe they will revise the limit down, but I guess the Olympics could be the deciding factor and we could have the same as happened with the Olympic windsurfing where the Olympic kit will have no relevance to popular kiting.
