Presumably slalom boards are wholly tested under race sails, yet some still go quite well with a no-cam freeride sail (my 2008 Falcon89 for instance). Is it possible to make an assessment about a slalom board's suitability for freeride sails just based on design aspects? What aspects of a slalom board would show that it is tolerant of a non-race sail?

Your cheetahs are semi race sails ...shifu...it really doesn't make any diff ...and no I didn't give a like to seanhogans

having a fast slalom board is a good move ...
eg ..100 litre slalom carbon Exocet .zoom zoom .

I'm also a cheetah user ..33.4 knots and climbing ..6.0 cheetah .
