Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

The only boards I rode that were a bit like what (I think) Robby used in the 1990's (ie. fast tail, sharp rails at the tail) were the Mistral Eruption 257 and Mistral 253. They were very fast wave boards and the sharp rails at the tail had a lot of bite, so you could change direction very fast - but...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

Ahh. As fun as grippy top turns are in my mind they’re just not in the same league of fun/style/rad-ness as a turn where you chuck the fins out. First of all, it makes it look like a board turns tight but it´s the rider. Most people can´t do it like that, not even very good riders. You pretty much ...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

The MBs are obviously more suited to shitty onshore conditions that perfect DTL but they do seem to work fairly well... And an image of the top turn? I would like to see that. Even that bottom turn is not like the diagram. The tail is deeper than the nose. Water is something different than snow and...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

This is the diagram. Thanks for the help! I've seen that before, and it makes sense for flexible skis in snow for sure. I bought some cheap, stiff, straight sided water skis once and they didn't turn. Some water skis have that shape, but they are also flexible. https://boatworld.co.uk/image/cache/d...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

In the absence of info on the MB boards, we seem to have got onto the Stubby - which to me looks very different to the MB boards - Stubby looks much closer to the Grip than the MB. Adam does use the Stubby quite a lot and explains what advantages it has in this. More that it planes earlier and gets ...

Re: PWA Waves POZO 2019

Wind was a bit more onshore than usual and the waves were weak, but over the 3 days, the conditions were improving and it is hoped conditions will be good to start the main event tomorrow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PI1Q2Ql8hJ8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whPOSDlJL1s https://www.youtube.com...
