My name is Bruce Wylie, I am the US distributor for Drops.
I have a 9,2".
This board was originally designed for high wind course racing which
includes tacking. This means that the board has some generous volume
at 116 ltr.
Having been designed about a year ago, the design is very conventional,
not a wide tail. This means the board actually has been working very well
as a light wind Slalom board all over the country as the board has a really
wide range. I have used the board with sails from, 8.0, down to, 6.0,
you could even go lower if you had to..
The tail is, 13 3/4".
Max Wide, 22 5/8".
Nose, 10 1/4".
The standard model is made with a composite of about 50 / 50, Carbon and
Glass, this one weighs in at about 14 pounds.
We also offer a hand made version of this board that is 100% Kevlar and
Carbon, this one weighs in at about 12.5 to 13 pounds, but is not as
In any case I hope this information helps you out. If you have any more
questions please call me toll free at, 1 888 376 7872..
Best Regards,, Bruce Wylie...
