What a smooth board! It jumped on a plane, held its speed through the lulls and quick tacked easily. For jibes, I could take long, smooth turns in smooth water or turn it quickly inside short chop. Easy pivot jibes, too. This board is built for no-hassle, pure fun sailing in all but extreme conditions. Want H2O fun? This is the one!
