I wish.......
just lamenting this week how much I struggle with chop

had a well powered session at manly RQYS 2 weeks ago on the futura 141 80cm wide 7m sail. It has taken 2 weeks for the tendons and muscles in my lower legs to settle down.

Walking up up stairs was painfull

hence I have been trying to work out how to do chop!! I'm sure it's a technique thing but hey who needs a reason not to buy another board

Plenty of windsurfers having fun on all different types of boards that day

Recently I sailed a mates Bic techno 283 bribie passage choppy. It was like a queen mary cruiseliner through the chop. Tony got 2sec 27knts. It was a lot smoother ride than my 114 futura and faster as the board was more in control. -- so much to learn!!!

Jeff, from what ive seen n learned the GT is easier to handle in chop. Naish heritage =Hawaiian test bench.
Hawk can be difficult to sail when pushed hard.
Ive sailed neither.

Patrik 125L f-ride is a sweet board for chop. Forget the 125L and think more 67.5 wide, 38ish long fin. I think it's a similar bottom shape to the Tabou but maybe a little longer. I have the Tabou in the 95L and love it fwiw.

^^ Paddy, not a great deal of info available for the 125 F ride. But it reads up as a great board for my size. More the dimensions i was looking for. As usual the board i want/need is not to be readily found for sale here in Oz. Grrr... Anyone know where i can source a 125 F ride?

Hawk good ,also the 125 rocket ,but you knew i was gonna say that ,my mate has the 120 naish ,not fast
the Newer Titan 120 how ever is very fast .

THE Patriks are little speed machines ,i like the Slalom models better ,as they gybe a lot better ,don't know why .
I have the 115 slalom ,it turns gusts into speed in seconds ,
i have the 140 freerace ,although very fast ,its a tank to gybe ,

rockets are easy to use and have speed .i like them cause its easy .and eat chop .
