Good point...also it's helpful to hear how the gear works for
lightweights...my 110lb wife has struggled in the past to find a board
that will not skip out on her (she likes her JP freestyle wave now).

Yes, please more super heavyweights for the board tests. Believe it or
not, adding 60 pounds or so to the back of a board can really affect
how it
rides (especially trying to pop on a plane). I've rented a lot of 90
liter
boards and am always amazed at how some are just dogs while others
work really well. The lighter guys don't seem to notice. And sails
too...
height
can really affect the leverage you can get on a sail... and cams...
mmm..
don't
get me started :-)
