pro fleet board choice in Tiree

hi,

looking at photos of Tiree wave heats, x off conditions logo high waves, I see lots of the sailors are using single fin boards and Ben Proffitt a Quatro quad when I would have thought the Rhythm would excel in such conditions.

Think it would be great if you could run through the board selection criteria the pros use given they have access to all different types, perhaps not here but as part of upcoming tests.

Cheers

Is your assumption that the pros have access to all the boards in a range correct though?

Or do some wise pros chose to sail certain boards due to their impending UK launch thus ensuring they and their sponsor get plenty of coverage?

(and of course there is the issue that a lot of the top guys don't sail production boards, and thus you are just seeing customs with the appropriate branding - not sure if many of our pros are able to do this though).
