The Spanish championship is happening at the moment and will go until sunday. Miguel Martinho POR 5 is leading, second is Fernando Martinez and third Pablo Ania. The Worlds starts on Monday.

Bob | 11th January 2010 (11:00:03)

Has someone already ride the new JP Formula and perhaps some fin advises?

Anonym | 11th January 2010 (12:03:34)

Have a look at what's being used with the Mike's lab... same board!

zebxilson4 | 3rd May 2010 (00:56:06)

Stop hack the program!!!

пердуперденция купить

PEter | 29th August 2010 (01:16:47)

Hey somebody could tell me whats the best formula board?? PD, Starboards, JP?? thx..planing to buy now...

Anonym | 29th August 2010 (07:07:51)

haha, good question . If starboard riders are answering then they say starboard, if jp riders answer then they say jp. But actually you have to find yourself the one. Boards are so different and racing styles, fins, sails are so different that you have to test it by yourself :)

starboard rider | 29th August 2010 (07:43:55)

my friend is using JP and is kicking my ass so I think exocet is the best so you should buy gaastra

PEter | 30th August 2010 (00:20:11)

how clever!! you are telling my that is impossible that someone would give an honest answer to this..???? Maybe somebody will..so if you don't have a clew just don't answer..

Anonym | 30th August 2010 (08:58:18)

Peter, Anonym is right, depends on serveral factors such as style, weight, fins, conditions, beginner or Pro etc. If you are <75 kg try LWR or Gaastra. >75 try Gaastra, Exo, HWR, JP...but as a general start. Myself 75 kg is using Gaastra, Exo and SB160 at the moment...and I still cant say what board is the best.

PEter | 30th August 2010 (14:24:29)

OK, I am 83 kgs aprox, i've been racing for a long time, i am thinking of buying some nps or norths, what do you recomend??
did you try the new starboards anonym..?

Anonym again | 30th August 2010 (16:02:33)

what fins do you use ?

fw sailor | 30th August 2010 (17:17:23)

PEter- there's a lot of good gear on the market now.
I think with enough tuning, you can make any of the gear in the last 2 years go extremely well. Watch what other top sailors in your area are riding and match their set up. Change accordingly for your size and ride!

rafa | 30th August 2010 (22:35:54)

Phil McGain has just won the US Nationals with a ST 158, a board from 2004... Any 2010 FW board out there would perfectly work. It is the rider who makes the difference!

to rafa | 31st August 2010 (14:03:52)

or Paulo dos Reis won the US Nationals in SF 2010?

sean | 1st September 2010 (01:04:33)

Paulo won the Formula, Shurman won the Slalom and Phil one the overall

? | 1st September 2010 (08:57:14)

is SB 158 a slalom board?

Anonym | 1st September 2010 (18:25:37)

Nope, SB 158 is a Formula Board.

Anonym | 4th September 2010 (03:20:50)

If Phil McGain didn't win the formula neither the slalom, how he won "overall"?

john | 4th September 2010 (11:14:17)

lol .Do you make windsurf???

sean | 6th September 2010 (03:13:19)

Phil second slalom, second formula and first long distance.

mickeystoney | 6th September 2010 (12:20:15)

Hi everyone! Im not sure "event.php?id=111" is the right place for this question but moderators can move it :) (sorry)
I recently discovered a web site with ads of nu skin products and I can sure say it looks to good to be true... The ads claimed that the galvanic spa device can get you rid of acne and basically all skin problems plus removes wrinkles! Im a little bit sceptical and I dont want to throw $450 so I would really appreciate some reviews... does it really work?! and if yes how exactly? people trying to sell it please dont reply.

racer | 8th September 2010 (07:52:14)

ceri, anything about Europeans this year?

john | 11th September 2010 (08:56:26)

Europeans is possible in cadiz in november!

?&#191;??&#191; news?&#191;?

racer | 19th September 2010 (15:59:23)

ceri, week is ending. no news

FRA418 | 21st September 2010 (16:13:02)

I am not a good FW racer but I enjoy the swimming, blasting and racing.

On National event in UK, France, or Belgium it seems there is between 10 to 20 racers now a days. The people doing those events are mainly amateurs (95% I believe). I feel like it would have been good to have a bigger event in this part of the world to look forward too for these sailors. Amateur are filling in for these small but national events, the class needs to consider those people because numbers are really not much at those (and reducing in UK). There is no easy solution but if the sport cannot be professional, it should still be amateur. Because if it is none perhaps amateur number might reduce further so that it could become hard for it to be professional again. I am not sure about this but I think it needs to be taken more in consideration. Numbers are not very high at the small event and we basically race often against the same person throughout the year (in my case). Hopefully the financial situation will improve and big events can happen again but this has to be considered I feel in case the financial situation continues.

Anonym | 27th September 2010 (08:46:29)

when is the final date to announce when this year europeans will be ???

ceri | 27th September 2010 (11:06:31)

a newsitem was published on the 19th. The first option for ESP at beginning of November was cancelled . We are looking towards a venue at end of november

joFRA873 | 27th September 2010 (17:18:42)

and why not inside the New year race Cadiz end of december?

racer | 28th September 2010 (09:10:18)

maybe we should make an exception once and have Europeans without prize money instead of not having them at all this year? (or there is another problem???)

ceri | 28th September 2010 (12:03:26)

all options are being explored to ensure we have a europeans this year

There was 30 FW at the french open!!! But only 11 at the british one.

It feels like this area of europe needs a bigger event if possible.

SeanAUS120 | 8th November 2010 (22:31:47)

Sounds like its time France put their hand up for a GP...

ceri | 9th November 2010 (13:47:06)
