How is your Board Quiver "Spaced "?

Post by Luck » Sun, 27 Mar 2005 07:44:35


Just merely getting some conversation going on this....cause I'm
curious.

I'm sure that answers will vary on weight, type of sailing, location,
money...etc., but it should be fun to hear some responses.  I'm trying
to figure out if my quiver is similar to others'.

For me, I go from the longboard to my 112 liter Supercross.  My "high"
wind board is an 85 liter Naish Wave.  I feel like I have a large gap
their and kinda wish that Naish Wave was more like 90 liters....but
who's paying attention :).

Ugghhh, this snow can't melt fast enough.

I appreciate you starting this thread,  I'm curious myself.  I have a
Techno Formula, Techno 283 and 112 ltr Techno e.  I'm thinking I can get
rid of the Techno 283 and get something around 90-95 ltrs for high wind
days.

This could be an interesting thread.  First of all, few of us get to go
out every year and buy the 3 boards we really want.  So we usually have
a somewhat odd mix.  Let's also not forget that liters ain't
everything, and 2 boards 15 liters apart can be waaaaay different.

I Utah my spacing is Hpersonic 133,  RRD Twin Tip 115, Cross M 75.  Sail
spacing 8.5 to 3.7

In the Gorge my spacing is RRD Freeride 105,  Logosz Squish ~80,  HiTech
IBM ~70.  Sail spacing 6.5 to 3.2.

Lots of light wind in Utah,  Lots of heavy air on the Gorge, you can see
the bias in the board quivers.

Just got feet of new snow here, looks like face shots tomorrow  8*)

Active board quiver
Hifly Madd 135  135 liters   264 cm
F2 Max2Air 264   115 liters  264 cm
F2 Max2Air 254    90 Liters  254 cm
RRD WaveOne Medium 84 liters 249 cm
F2 Wave 250        75 liters 250 cm
Sails range from 8.0 to 3.5.

Interesting how theres only 15 cm differance between my high wind board
and my low wind board. These boards can handle Hatteras, Cape Cod,
Plattsburg or Hood River and Have.  Some overlap between the 135 and 115
liter board but different performance.

Inactive boards
F2 Xantos 295 II
Mistral Equipe
F2 Axxis 273
