I know this thread was discussed a couple of months ago but I didn't pay enough
attention at the time, sorry. :-(
FOr those of you who have Mistral Challenge Flex boards, please send me your
observations/comments about the board and what you think they're worth. I would
use the short tail for surf sailing (mostly) and some bump-n-jump and the
big tail for slogging around in San Diego on semi-windy days. Could I use a
big sail (7.0 or so) on this board? How about a 4.0?
Despite the recent rash of negativism about the Windsurfing rag, I was duly
impressed with the cover shot and the centerfold. Now *that* is Real Man's(tm)
surf sailing! :-) Kinda reminds me of Rich Meyer getting gobbled by that
double-mast-high wave on Massive Monday of the Aloha Classic II. Awesome!
Speaking of pictures, the GIF that Juri put in alt.binaries.pictures.misc is
great! Thanks for a great screen background! It's nice to have something that
is already large enough to use as a background without blowing it up.

P.S. The storms are lining up off the coast - San Diego may be in for some
more 5.0 weather this weekend. This is great! Hope you other folks in SoCal
get some wind - let's hear some reports if you do.
