not mine. I don't have the foils. I have the most ugly "pastel brown'' performance board and a white race board with an accordian style crunch on the bow due to piss poor packaging.

I wonder why carafinos new stuff is not fast. .


I'm wondering why you think the new Carafino is not fast. In my experience it was plenty fast but felt a bit slower than my Augera, however that is very hard to determine for two reasons:

1. The only day I rode it I did not have a GPS and I did not ride my Augera that day to compare. The comparison would not be fair in any case since the Carifino wings I was using were much larger and lower aspect than what I am used to.
2. I have not ridden the Carafino, or know anyone with a Carafino, who has ridden with the high aspect race wings. All the Carafino owners here are pretty new at foiling and are sticking with the low aspect large wings.

We won't know if the Carafino foil and wing is fast until one of the top experienced riders gives it a go.

And, speed is not desirable for everyone. My Augera is crazy fast, stable and easy to ride. But even then, at my advanced age, the high velocity is a bit scary, and occasionally the high speed wipe outs can hurt.

Lol

If you have an aguera foil why would you bother with a carafino? Or even use the same names in the same sentense?

Aguera (as a product and industry personality) are the epitome of elegance like a thompson gazzele.

Carafino is like a honey badger

wind-rider:

you had some issues with C and that's sad of course
we all know that by now...

but now you try to cover with dirt when someone else give a positive (kind of) review of C boards/foils?

you are for sure, a very, very, very, small person...

you are here just because the moderator is absent, or busy counting the views (or ads)

what a fuc... up thread. No wonder why so few are posting C reviews or related info ...

Fair play re chasing up your dispute, but... it seems from the above tangent, you are actively seeking confrontation ?
