I hope what you are saying is true, but I'd sure like to see it run against Bruno, Damo, or Adam as these are the only 3 guys that seem to have it together at all.
Well MKM : I never said that it would beat the Best of the Best, but it's better than any of the current 2010 Production Boards available at the moment.
Call me insane, but I sincerely doubt that this particular twin tip is remotely competitive against the new Aguera boards. I'd suspect that the race boards will gain 3-4 degrees upwind, ride 3-4 degrees lower down wind, and ride at the same speed or faster than the twin
As I said: In the Future there may be potential. You just have to try and see where things lead you. It may work, it may not, but one thing is sure: This board is the easiest Competitive Raceboard to ride at the moment. A board like this could get more people interested in Racing. It may not have the performance of Adams, Damos and Bunos boards, but whose does? Especially not the guy with the Aguera Board at the Europeans last weekend who got his butt kicked. A lot of racing performance still comes down to the rider.
Tacking really isn't a consideration for a raced board if you know how to do them and can ride a race board. The only advantage of a twin would be jibing off the wind. I'm sure that this would be faster than current quads..
Yes, but there are so many people that want to Race and can't tack a directional Raceboard.
And the twin tip is not Mine. I'm the guy who came 1st. I still ride a directional as I prefer that style and I want to develop my own ideas rather than have everything done for me.
Additionally, if a foil guy placed on the top 2, I'd question either the level of competition at the event and/or the type of courses being run.
The Level of the German Tour may not be that high yet, but luckily there are people like me and armin whose goal is to get more people involved and get the level of racing up here in Germany. What we don't need it people like you "pissing" on anything that is remotely different and making hurtful statements.
The Course was a standard Triangle.
If we want more people to race we need startup equipment. The goal of the TT Raceboard is to get people involved.
I thought you would be more openminded and interested in grass roots racing as you obviously have vested interest with Cabrinha and Aguera.
