As we are having more issues with seaweed every year, I am sure there is a market for a seeweed setup with a more delta shaped wing. The 633 is already great but the stabilizer is collecting quite a bit of weed. So maybe just a deltashaped stabi for the 633...can't wait...
Hmmm, we have periods with spots where seaweed is nasty also...
But I can not see how swept wings will help much, as for me I have to stop if there is seaweed just on the mast, and it will usually get caught on the mast a lot more than the wing, or at least the same amount.
I hate to ride with seaweed on the mast, even if ever so little - and on the wing(s) is a totally no go for me.
Even a tad of eelgrass on the mast is bugger
Things doesnt work anymore, timing is off, you can not glide through on waves or maneuvers anymore - so I stop and take it off the mast often, and always seek to ride where there is little or no seaweed.
Even at the very same spot, you can usually with only short distance between, find areas with loads, and some that are pretty free of this aaaaargh stuff, around here - or one can drive to another spot to see if it is better - we are spoiled with loads of spots
But seaweed can come any day, or leave the day after, particularly if the wind has changed direction it gets bad
When weed for weeks, here in the autumn when at its worst - it is a PITA
It hasnt been bad this year here though
