What foil did you hit 35.8 Jon?

smooth water sure helps the top speed huh?
I was on a Spotz 2. I wasn't in smooth water when I hit it. Open ocean!

Yes, smooth water definitely helps.

Re: how fast are You!?

I also got the Suunto Ambit2 and have been really happy with it. Took a little while to figure out the interface... but so far so good.

I've been hitting 35.8 mph on my 11m Sonic. I average around 33-34mph on the downwinds and about 22-23 mph on the upwinds.

Re: IKA terminates agreement with PKRA

Toby- Thanks for your comments. Good to hear that very few are complaining. For everyone who "doesn't care": I understand, I honestly don't care who wins on the tour... nor do I follow events.... What you should care about (what I care about) is that media, press...etc all contribute to the sports g...

Re: IKA terminates agreement with PKRA

The IKA claims dissatisfaction amongst riders..... yet I haven't heard of a tour rider currently complaining. I've only heard good things.....

Anyone??????

Re: IKA terminates agreement with PKRA

When I started competing 14 years ago, this sport had a very succinct & respected set of world tour events. This is embarrassing. The tour riders must feel terrible about this. I'd love to know who is behind the IKA and why they made this decision. The press release did very little to specify why th...

Re: sanding brand new Spotz 2

You need to be really careful sanding/repairing your foil. In my opinion, if you're not racing at a high level, don't waste your time. With that said, if you want your foil to be perfect, follow these steps: 1. Always sand at 45 degree angles to water flow. (I'm not getting into arguments about this...

Re: PKRA Pingtan - What The Shame!

Really? How is anyone under 25 yrs old able to buy gear, train (take time off work), compete, travel, while still paying for rent, utilities, water? all without having a great source of income??? If, they are that good, that young, then they must not have had to earn the money to pay for the origin...

Re: PKRA Pingtan - What The Shame!

Gisela's comment: “We are leaving Pingtan without an official result of the event. Yesterday in the double elimination I lost the final against Karolina so we had to do the “superfinal” to break the tie. After announcing the result that I was the winner, they said they missed one of Karolina’s tric...
