I sailed the Real Hots on Lake Arenal last spring. They are quite nice
sails. They powered up nicely and had good range. Not quite the grunt of
the other sails I was on at the time, but that's a personal preference.
They are oriented towards B&J sailing.
I've bought a board and accessories from RealWind, and they seem fine to do
business with. Being fairly local, I've never had to arrange shipping.
Not to be blatantly opportunistic, but if you're in the Portland area, I
have a small quiver of Northwaves for sale as well ;-)
