Great !!! ... as I am surprised to see so many boards in line before shipping and not a single foil.

You've mentionned in a previous post that the foils where made exclusively with Uni Dimensionnal carbon. The competition for straight struts (meaning far less torsional stiffness than a curved strut) however use UD + bi axial 45 deg or even quadri Axial.

On your site, we can see both curved and straight strut foils.
Does it mean that you are thinking about releasing straight mast foils in 2014 as well ?

You lost me there - what is a "performance board" ???

Nothing can be more "performant" than a raceboard IMO, or ?

Maybe off topic, maybe not...

Carafino

Thank you for the photos of the boards. They look good.
Hopefully production is moving along.

There are many things that can go wrong in producing a new product and timelines can be delayed.

All people want is the truth about the delay, to be reassured they will get product. We don't need specifics but we do need truthful time lines.

I hope you get the design right, deliver product, then I for one will order a Carafino if the offer is still available but only once people have received them, tested them and reports are all good.

On the picture, it says:
Straight Mast vs curved, I think the picture is trying to compare the differences.

carafino call it performance, I don't care how you call it 8)
its the smaller thinner board that you see in the picture more "beginner friendly" than a race board and easier to learn on apparently. It the "regular" foil board.

I suggest you go on the website to watch what it look like

http://carafino.wix.com/carafino#!__2014-carafino-performance-boards

the race board is the bigger one, that you saw in the previous video on the beach where you saw the foil and the two wings.

edit: I added some details
edit: corrected the website adress
edit: corrected my poor english..
