Anonym | 7th June 2008 (00:14:24)

well done gonzalo

Polis | 7th June 2008 (02:36:24)

R20 is a useless fin ?

worst than Drake stock fin ?

Opel | 7th June 2008 (09:54:43)

Many say they are using deboichet, I guess they painted the deboichet Black to look like the Kashy fins, hahaha

Opel | 7th June 2008 (09:57:51)

Some Deboichet team riders are using black fins, we don't know if this is a new marketing strategy from Oriana (deboichet) or if maybe there was to much oil in the water making the fin stay with that color...

Polis | 7th June 2008 (12:31:50)

so is R20 in the top 3 ?

otherwise, i'm taking oriana for barbrque : )

Anonym | 7th June 2008 (12:43:56)

Anonym | 8th June 2008 (13:59:54)

JK | 9th June 2008 (08:33:16)

When are the results for the Formula Tour going to be posted? Portugal and Sopot?

francesco zarbo | 9th June 2008 (12:03:45)

Thomas Fauster yesterday won the italian open with R13 black 7 years old. Don't You think to give too importance to the fin ?? is it so important 1/4 knot of extra speed if You tack in 3 minutes ?
