Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

The resellers of apple watch 2 and 3 here in Sweden clearly state the product is not waterproof enough for watersports like surfing etc.

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

Re: Enata Foil reviews?

Texas, You are probably right. Race wings are designed for the racers who are supposed to win races on them. So a company has a some racers, they could be 150lb or 190 lb. Who knows. Then they test out foils till they go fast for them. Good for racing. They probably have lightwind and high wind wing...
