The ML is a great, great board.
anyway the link you posted give us a clear picture of what Bay Racers preference is.
I am already happy that 5 of them rode Orange at the NAC at Mike's home.
One year ago, same time , TemaVento was not even on the market

10 days ago at the french stop of Kite Tour Europe there was only 1 ML and 13 TemaVento..
does this mean that they prefer Orange ?

At the Euros, I see from the entry list that already 30 TMV customers signed in for the event .

different points of view
like this one for example:

Yes, the TV is a great board! It had an awesome design head start, but that is a whole other topic. It is great to have numerous brands in the industry. That is for sure, it keeps it interesting....

ML in Holland right now? Who is the dealer? What's the price?


On an other topic, does anyone have a feedback on those N+1: http://nplus1.pl/buy-online.html ?
It looks like a new brand and might have not been heard of. But if they're competitive, it might be a good deal...

Tomek Janiak finished 8th at the North American Championships on the K-Rapida.
You can see him here (number 102) at 6:50 in this video showing a lot of skill to avoid Adam Koch.

That's an interesting thing to say. What do you make of any other triangle tailed board?

You only had to look at windsurf boards to know the design was going that way.

when we developped our 2012 raceboard (august/september 2011) it was told that the new courses would have had much less upwind
and much longer downwind ... in 2012 we have always raced with very long upwind.. if you look at windsurfing ..
the difference between a formula board and a slalom one is the same as our race and slalom board.

knowing that the dead line for the actual board was dec31 2012.. I took all the time at my disposal to develop the 2013 RC 70 cause this board will have to last for 2 season racing

then there is the scoop/rocker line story :)
every shaper choose his own compromise.

Bonaire and San Francisco have very different water plans
but we have to find the right compromise cause we cannot vary the rocker

The bay area is not the be all and end all of kite racing. Yes it is a bit of a hub but just because everyone was on Mikes doesn't make them the only choice.
Mike is missing out a trick there.


75 racers in San Fran for 2013
so far there is 127 registered for Europeans and still a month to go!

Thank you all for your answers and collaboration,
At the end opt for V4 Monaro 2013, price and accessibility.,,, I think it will be an opportunity to learn and grow ..
I've been sailing with her barely a month, and I'm thinking of changing fins, as the series seem very hard, has a G10, 2x42 + 1x38 with 3'5 ° canting, I go great with little wind and sea dish but if the sea is rough or windy and not going so well,
I think another set of fins with more flex, perhaps also less fin (cm) or less degrees of canting,,,
Someone with references can help me?
thanks

I found less cant made the board ride easier when very powered up, in lighter wind more cant helps the board fly better and you can really get the board up on it's fins and foiling.

Less cant for beginner I think.
