I tried Stephane's Seathroughboards twin tip, the yellow one i believe in Dumps, Co Kerry, ireland earlier this year in September 2010
Wind was a cross on 18kts on average - ish
I was on 13m Ozone Sport 07
I usually ride on a UG 09 FLX 135
I aint a wake styler, i like big jumps, big airs, i ride for fun really
The pop was good enough for me
Tacking up wind was as easy as my FLX
The North pads and straps were sweet as (snug, tight, all good)
Landings were soft enough
The board is good...
The colored frame helps seeing it when you wipe out
I believe it also gives buoyancy and strength to the TTdownside:
No handles , i like handles on my board...
The board edge is sharp enough nothing major though
So in Ireland i could not see much with the power of the waves moving the sand and seaweed in a constant tidal move... I tried focusing on it but thats when i would wipe out...
Did i see any fishes? No!
I would have tried the surfboard and the foil but i injured my knee later on that day on my FLX
For the see through part, it depends what you expect from it...
See little fishies or have your board disappear in the sea...
Stephane has done a good job developing the board which has nothing to envy from other boards on the market...
