I've got the Carver too, but never used it so far. Can you describe how different is the flying compared to the Freeride? Handling, upwind and min/max speed?
Do you keep the straps in the same positions, or are you going strapless?
What board are you using? I haven't seen anyone using the Air Wave strapless. Any reason?
I found the Carver wing so bloody heavy (making transporting and body dragging a pain in the butt), I've asked a local guy who is experienced with composite materials for foils to make the same out of carbon with a balsa core. Will let you know if it was a good idea.
I'd also like a composite fuselage, or at least a hollow one. The Double agent wings and fuse are incomparably lighter than the Zeeko's, which makes the pre-waterstart phase a delight, compared.
Wishing Zeeko went the hybrid way (alu mast - composite for the rest) like several other manufacturers do already.
BTW, coming from the Cab Double Agent I was surprised at the low speed the Freeride Zeeko could get going; I would say not even a knot more than the DA. Wonder what the Carver lowest speed will be!
Another observation: even with the 2.5 cm fin, I found the Freeride too stable in yaw for sharp turns. Anyone removed it?
