Looking for riders that have experience jumping the North/Duotone speedster.
I bought one when they first came out, love to ride it, but broke the first fuselage on session 3....
Got it replaced under warranty and they did a great job, but getting it to PH took me a while.
Since then i also have a GONG surf foil which i ride mostly now, however i'd like to get into boosting in lighter winds with the foil.
And the speedster will be more suitable for that since its lighter.
Now, before going out and risking snapping another fuselage i'd like to check if anyone jumps on their speedster often, and has the thing holding up ?

If you already broke it with normal riding is would sell the speedster and go for a stronger foil. Seen too much broken speedster fuses to advise abusing that foil, injection molded nylon with carbon fibres is probably not up to the task in a high-stress part like a fuselage.
