BS: Can you give us any insight into what the boards might be like in the next year or two?
ML: Well when we look at history, Fanatic came 2 years ago with the new idea, to make the board with less volume but to include more width, thus the GECKO was born! All you guys out there are raving about this board, the customers love this concept and the boards are really a lot of fun. They boards feel much lighter under foot and despite the lower volume there is no damage to the early planing ability. If we follow this trend and think about some of the things said above then perhaps slalom shapes we follow this trend, actually it is quite hard to tell because we are still testing exactly this and won’t put anything on the market that is equal to that of the previous year, it MUST be better.
