RRD HS Contest 36 test

Postby Zol Tan » Wed Jun 18, 2003 1:34 pm


I have found a test about the RRD HS 36 Contest version on the site but only french. Somebody can traranslate the main opinion, conclusion about the board for me?

Is it a big diffrence between the Hs and the Contest? Ok I know about the design, weight and the 4-6 fins but waht about the feeling? Is it worth to pay more for the Contest?

:thumb: Yes, the extra money are well spend, it's a very nice board, with a Wide windrange, ang good upwind abillity, nice jump, easy to land, and nice handle.

I can only recomed this board, I tried better but not serial/factory made!!

Good equipments on this board.
Raw finish but this is the style they wanted to give to this board
This is an easy board to ride with a self behaviour but technical in strong wind.
It sticks a little bit on the water during the jump impulse because of the number of fins.
Easy landings
Good behavior in choppy conditions.

A light board for medium wind, good but not much better than the HS.
