Thanks, it was a bit frustrating at first but now I think it is working fine.Westozzy wrote:A very balanced review man, and I concur from my time on the W16 and W18.
Spray in face happened when riding board a bit flat with some weight on the front leg while hitting small choppy waves. Easy to avoid by keeping a little more edge and weight a little more back. Sounds different from your experience. Never got elephant legs and perhaps I'm not that bothered with spray.Westozzy wrote:Never had trouble with water in the face, was up against the back of my leg that annoyed me, more than normal. Not a biggy but pissed me off and my bro. Front foot can alleviate it a bit. Just needs that tip to curve sooner I feel.
Icebird gives a good lowdown (I think he said he's fairly light), though there are some issues at foot placement and keeping the rail in with smaller feet. Like many say it's strongest point is not absolute upwind angle, but the thing has a lot of efficiency.bigwave wrote:Mike did anyone at or under 75kg try the W18 in some light wind?
