The Test Quiver

It is important when doing comparative testing between boards to eliminate as many variables as possible. We chose to use identical Gaastra Manic¹s as our test sails on the boards.

The Manics are renowned for their effortless handling and good wind range. We had two quivers of 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0m sails to put the 75 litre boards through their paces on. Combined with Gaastra RDM masts and extensions, they were great rigs that allowed us to get on with the job of testing without concern.


As usual, we chose to use MFC as our test quiver of fins. It¹s a real benefit to be able to try the boards with different sizes and styles of fin. The MFC 2K is the benchmark all-round wave fin, so we choose a set of 20.5, 21, 21.5, 22 and 23cm for our quiver.
