Thanks for the video.

Disappointed you edited out the starts and most of the transitions. Given you're riding a 51L board all that stuff is far more interesting than cruising along on the waves.

Also disappointed that North don't put weights for the boards on the web site. Given that swing weight is a critical factor in choosing a smaller board then weight matters a lot. My 107L carbon sandwich board is only a couple of kgs heavier than my 40L board.

Hi Oz,

Ok. I personally think showing too many transitions and starts makes the video a bit boring, especially when it's about the waves, but I also understand where you are coming from. For me the size of the board is not really a factor in gybes or tacks. As I typically do not drop off the foils it does not matter to me which board I have under my feet in those maneuvers.

I was about to drop a similar comment to OzBungy's - nice video, but not much related to the wing performance.

@Gunnar, maybe you can make a separate edit of what we're interested to see ;)

Ok. So basically 3 minutes of just waterstarting and gybes and tacks?

Thanks. Much more interesting than seeing you stand and wiggle on a bunch of identical waves. :wink:

More seriously, it much better shows off the capabilities of the equipment and the rider than gliding along on a wave. It's much more dynamic than gliding along.

BTW My favourite move is the tack onto a wave face. I've pulled it off on a kite and foil. Not up to that on the wing yet.

Hi Guys,

Here is another Video on the Nova 4.2. It shows how nice and stable the Wing is.
