The Test Quiver
It is important when doing comparative testing between boards to eliminate as many variables as possible. We chose to use identical North Ice’s as our test sails on the boards.
The Ice’s are renowned for their light handling and great wind range. We had two quivers of 4.2, 4.7 and 5.3m sails to put the 75 litre boards through their paces. Combined with North Platinum RDM masts and RDM Power XT extensions, they were fantastic rigs that allowed us to get on with the job of testing boards without worrying about the rigs.
