Which new raceboard to buy?

Postby Tien » Sat Aug 11, 2012 12:16 pm

Hi,I want to buy a new racing board and i have some options:
Newind
Tema vento
North
Rrd
Monaro
Alex aguera LE
All of them 70cm of this year.
I was looking for the best performance one, and with which fins to fit yet this is the most important part of the board!

On that list I would say Alex's board.
Ask him what fins work best with it.

from minutes 8:54... Bruno Sroka on the new Aguera CR 69 LE HW is face to face with Lorenzo Giovannelli on Temavento RC 70 ... cross wind. Both on Race
Guess who won?

anyway the new AA is a very, very beautiful board.

Tested a lot of boards. But most small manufactures don't have any around the SF racing scene.

I answer the question the way I did because I know his board will hold up which it the number 1 thing we look at here in San Francisco.

Sounds like this might have something to do with the Temavento, want to send one to SF for the locals to demo?

If it is the Mike's Lab one i can't afford buy it.

i take it Jimmy is not sending a board over to SF, would be impressive if that board can hang.

Tien, sorry man but yeah the Miks lab is the board to have. I don't own one myself for the same reason.
All the boards on that list will get you competitive other than the "jellybean" of course.
Like somebody mentioned already get the one that will last at this point. a busted board is the slowest.

Like in every forum , once somebody writes something , he expect an immediate reply :)
Aug 15 is National Holiday in Italy ..

I have more then something to do with TMV, I own the company together with the shaper , Mr. Enrico Casciani.

We are a "small" company , IKA eligible only since june 21 2012.
So only since 2 months
Anyway we already produced, sold and shipped (mostly in EU) all the IKA required boards.

Some of the boards have been intensive used since march (those of the top riders)

In this small period the TMV won the Spanish title, The EU slalom title and is going to fight for the Italian Title already winning the last leg in Riccione. (the finals will be in Rome sept 8/9th )
I am not far from the true if I affirm that the ITA championship is one of the most competitive championships in the world. We have at least 6/7 people that are able to win, not just 1 or 2

We will be present in Cagliari for the Worlds , if you come there you can easily test one.

Sending a board to SF? to whom? Al-Kite ? Stefaans ?

I think I will wait for a "brave" rider who orders a TMV RC70.

In SF you already have the ML 70 , that is actually considered "The Board" and quite every Brand is copying this shape, outline, volume... .. Also Mr. Aguera has some boards in that area.

During the recent NA championship , just in the Gold division, more then half of the fleet (at least the first ten positions in the ranking :thumb: ) was riding the ML 70

It would be marvelous to have one TMV RC70 in SF area so people can compare the performance with the Best race machine in the world.

What I can do is to sell the board shipping free to the first courageous rider who wants to go "different" :D
