Firstly a quick update on the boardseeker 2010 test program:
4.7 & 4.2 wave sail test is now completed and aiming for release at the end of next week. We have had some amazing conditions to put these sails through their paces!
75 litre all-round wave board test is finished in cross-on conditions, but we will be taking the boards to Tiree next week for a little down the line action before releasing the test.
85 Multi-fin wave board and 5.3 power wave sail tests are in progress at the moment.
We will also be receiving the new Quatro Quad fin boards to take to Tiree next week, so will keep you up to date with our first impressions…we are loving the Tempo onshore twins, so will be interesting to see how the Quads fit in.
