I think the reasoning is that Olypmics would likely be one design and course boards are easier to make a one design. A lot less variables than a hydrofoil.Toby wrote:But with hydros you can go so fast even in marginal winds...why choose race boards then?
Why is that? Shallow water?Tone wrote:Where I live, you will get far more time on a formula board than a hydrofoil
well, question asked, question answered...Peter_Frank wrote:Around here, hydrofoils have been present in really small numbers the last 3 years, but Formula raceboards (or freerace) were the thing used for light wind and race by almost everyone.
2014 and the hydrofoil craze killed the raceboards here in Denmark - how has it gone in your country ?
A lot of really cheap formula raceboards went for sale, and many bought them for almost nothing.
Even these freeriders, also want to get a hydrofoil instead, after having learned to ride their new formula board.
So eventhough both formula and hydrofoil makes excellent light wind options, it seems that non racers also dismiss the raceboards now ?
Maybe just around here, I dont know...
