Forums aren't the place for masturbation, this is an intelligent and informed discussion

If indeed this is actually Bill Dawes posting, you clearly have a lot of pent up anger at all us "muppets". I feel even happier giving up on Boards magazine so long ago while you were editing, a dire publication.

All off topic somewhat, sorry.

To be fair you could search through any windsurf forum and there seems to be a cycle of complaints about testing every few months when someone gets a board they dont like on the advice of a test...

There is so much difference in how all of us sail that you would be a fool to read too deeply into the reviews. Try them out, talk to your friends and see what works with different fins before you slap down your latest paycheck.

Yeah they may all come out the same factory, but the designs and shapes evolve elsewhere, some will work some wont.

At the end of the day more time on the water will do a lot more for your sailing than a new board. But if you have the spare cash then indulge and share your experience.

I have never met Bill Dawes but I know who it is.

Regardless however of whether it is or not...

What if my sailing matches my talk, and what if my wallet matches it too?

What's the difference anyway?

I decided for once to contribute to this forum as a reply to big biggyzsmalls' initial thread that you can actually stick some extra fins onto a board that got bad reviews and make it better (unlike what most people would have you think), and ended up agreeing the most with bill smalls (is it the same person?) and timpy.

As for people who are abusive, well .... come and show us what you can do brother and how big your balls are...

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Give the tests a break, they are tested by specific people, who like boards that fit there specific style/feel. that's there opinion, maybe you should not read the test write ups as gospel, more opinion, and not everyone has the same opinion..

I tried that *board - once a barge always a barge, no matter how many fins you put in it!
I love Bill Dawes

Bill (If it is really you)

You get to windsurf all the time, and your windsurfing is still, at best, mediocre. Just like Jeremy Clarkson. He gets to drive on the track all the time and he is still shite.
