Hate to tell you this but you are wrong.
The old school boards will leave you in the back of the pack. The custom race boards (and fins)are being shaped for racing.
Also if you are not riding a surfboard all the time you will not be able to hop on one and keep up with seasoned racers.
just do it wrote:
Which courserace-board will you use in 2008?
Custom- or production-board?
Mailed to wowkites.com for prices but they didn't answer ...
Does the new North Rocket Fish go upwind fast enough with larger fins?
Thanks for infos!!!
I still have one of these boards(see picture)
This board is lightning fast, just needs better fins. It certainly is better than any modern Kite-Surfboard for course racing. All the modern directionals are too much designed for waves.
I might sell it though as there aren't any course races in the UK.
