I've got last years Mistral Score104 and find it to be really fun.
I've used it in surf with a 5.7&6.3 freestyle sail here in Oregon and
at San Carlos. You have to turn it in more of a pivoting fashion while
rideing waves, you can't just dig in the way you would with a wave
board.It is really a blast off the lip though. Aireals are so easy it's
almost not fair because it accelerates so quickly. However I have not
had that much fun in bigger surf(over 7') with it and would much rather
shlog out on my wave board and catch some waves. For Bump&Jump in
light air the Score 104 is too much fun. Jeff
