Just a note… I said we had a fin from a Fanatic Strike, I meant to say Blitz which is the all water board. Sorry for the confusion.
I’d like to follow up on my previous comment regarding the leak on my Starboard Allstar Airline. The board developed leaks in three different places. I contacted the dealer as per the warranty. Starboard did honor their warranty and sent me a new board a couple weeks ago. The new one uses the fusion skin technology so I hope it holds up well. Great job Starboard and Vermont Ski and Sport for their customer support.

You will be up and flying at 10 kts but with understanding and getting a good pumping technique maybe a little earlier too. For your bodyweight a 5.3 Nash wing will get you up in lighter winds 8-20kts. But if the wind is always this light maybe you should… Read more »
Thanks a lot, I ‘ll see how it works!
