Well as the wind drops ,and the big one gets another wash ,and the small one is still waiting to be launched ,I thought I'd lay them out and compare ...
to my surprise the 2 on the left look similar in size ...but not to be...once on the water ..
100 litre slalom Exocet ,115 SL and 140 freerace patriks
So stoked with my collection ..of slalom boards ..even though still waiting to try my new 100 litre .

they are not real resent boards ,2014-2015 2x left and 2016 .right
but good enough for me .

Keep sending photos of your collections . It would also be interesting to know how many boards people can accumulate, I got 7 and used them all this year , will have to take them all out for a group photo.

Steve & my selection but not the full quiver at the time. Since then we have thinned them a little and added new boards so still have that many plus a few...

That's the rigging area at my local, and yes, they are superb in rough water and I do have a 116 too (will go under the new 7.5 Cheetah i just ordered )

I've got 12 boards, about half of them retired, too lazy to gather them for a pic, but I do have my retired fin bin (aka fire wood shed) that's easy to take photos of. These are just the retired fins, I probably have about another dozen, still in use, that haven't made the fin bin yet. A few of these, the really odd ones, I found or were given to me. Some of these go back to the early 80's.

Wow excellent to see the passion out there

But boy you guys must be a confused bunch, in some places the wind forecast changes from morning to lunch to the arvo, which board do you take must do your head in.
If you choose the wrong board are you upset after the session
So how many boards do you actually take to the beach if you have so how many.
anyway good to see the photos out there

Kind Regards
Walt

I only live 1.5 km from the beach. Bit lucky. I usually choose 2 or 3 boards if I'm unsure. We have it all sorted here so quite often it's a no brainer. We obviously take more when we travel out of town.

These are 2011 boards, glass construction. I have newer ones too, in carbon, and they sail just as well. The Crosses are very smooth, super-gybers.

And I was just about to ask what they were. Id like the next size up AB+. I have the 54 & 59 widths. It might be 67? and 110 litres.
