Speed Kit

I'm on the prowl for some speed kit... Anyone got anything for sale.

Something like an Starboard iSonic Speed or similar. probably around the 70-75 litre range.

Ivor is on his way in the estuary and I need some kite to make the most of it!

Are you looking for a small slalom board or an actual speed board? You are welcome to give my Fanatic speed board a go when I am down next. I was hoping for some wind tomorrow but it looks a bit poor even with the Ivor effect built in.

Probably an actual speed board, but it will all depend on price and availability.

Would be good to have a go on yours one day.. I promise not to beat your top speed on it!!

It would be a shame to beat my top speed but I would not let that happen. Not a chance. Riks has a small slalom board for sale which will be plenty fast enough and more versatile than a full on speed board. A bit pricey though, my Fanatic cost a lot less and it was brand new.

I have the fanatic falcon speed. 48cm wide and 68 litres but then I do also have a sonic 95 slalom board. I just wish we get some wind soon.

Oooh, that sounds interesting, I may have to look into it.

I'm still undecided whether to go for something around 53cm wide and 75 litres such as a fast slalom board or big speed board or a little smaller such as 48cm. What do you reckon?

Dont forget sails. To hit the big 40 you are going to need a full on slalom/speed sail or two.

Good sizes. Should suite both a speed and small slalom board. With Ivor being quite gusty a small slalom board may be the better option. I suppose it will depend what comes up and how much it costs.

Hmmm, have a couple of options now.

Brand new Fanatic Falcon the same as Impi's could be on the cards!!!

Have to get my car fixed first though and then check the funds.

Dont worry about the car. Get the board. I have found it easy to sail and pretty damn quick. Just need some wind already.

You've got a point there... Have you sailed it here at Ynyslas? How does it cope with chop.

Hmm, now might have a deal on a slighty larger board (80 litres and 55cm wide) Mistral SL Red Dot Team Edition - Obviously that would give me a wider range of conditions in which I could use it, I just don't know how fast it'll be in comparison to a full on speed board such as the Falcon Speed?

Decisions Decisions.

BoardSSSSSS sounds better than board.

What are the options in terms of boardssss?

Sounds like a midlife crisis to break 40knots. When are you turning 40 old man.

I'm not 40 years young until December, so I have a fair bit of time to hit the big 4-0!

Looks as though the current plan is as follow:
Fanatic Falcon Speed (48cm x 68litres)
Mistral SL Red Dot Team Edition (55cm x 80 litres)
6.3m North Warp
5.2m North Warp

All I'll need then is the ability!
