North Dice 2018 unhook issues

Postby flipper231 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 3:43 pm

Hello,

Trying basic unhook stuff, backs, fronts, s-bend and raileys. 5’9’’ 135-140, riding boots, Tona pop Ltd board, The 2016 Dice was super intuitive, very sweet to unhook in light 12-18 knots winds. The 2018 is a different story, it wraps , back stalls, the lady is having a terrible time with it. Any idea if this is just too low wind? In 15-20 she had a better time. Any tuning advice again, the 2016 worked well in the 12-18. Forgot to say, I am talking about the 13m.

I didn't find the 2018 any different than the 2017. Kind weird that you have these backstall issues. You're an advanced rider so I have to assume you checked your lines already.

Hello,

Yes lines checked, I just think the 2016 had a much wider sweet spot, at the expense of lift which the 2018 , generates much more. The 2018 is a bit higher aspect ration that 2016 soit lifts more and has improved hangtime...
