Did they ship them yet? Still waiting for mine, including the new board.

Yes they are shipping, hoping to have mine in a week or two. Reviewers saying better upwind angles and "easier maneuvers" compared to 637.

Haven't seen one but a friend got his and was not impressed with the board. Not enough rocker in the front and board nose dives constantly, probably purely for racing. He also found that at high speed the mast cavitated on the starboard tack only but that should hopefully disappear after sanding.

Any tiny race board will behave this way...not meant for surface riding whatsoever.

Wow, is he hitting 50kn+ cavatation speeds? :lol:

On a serious note, when does the board nosedives? Hiking up or downwind or surface riding/touchdown?

Good question, assumed he meant on water surface....if nose diving on the wing then its a simple CG issue and needs to move straps rearward! :-)

Didn't ask any questions because not interested, the board nose dives if you are not careful on accidental touchdowns, mast cavitates on one direction only at 30k (which is pretty fast).
