You sould try first, but I wouldn't bother.

I always adjust my boom longer to fit the maximal outhaul, in order to do be able to change the setting easily if need be. I have Ezzy's and they don't ...

When the centerboard is up, is the "center of lateral resistance" of the board much closer to the fin? And does that mean that the "neutral" (in the sense of not turning) positio ...

My local repairman hates protectors. He says that protectors can hide defects. When people come back for repairs, the boards are often wet and structurally impaired from too much impacts.

I am the unhappy owner of a belly too. I use a seat harness and it's always been super confortable.

If I was like the OP, always climbing back on the board to uphaul, I can't imagine a waist harne ...

I guess you are not planning.

It may be easier to tack instead. Bring the sail back, the nose will turn upwind and tack as usual.

It will be hard to gybe if you are sheeting out before attempti ...

I also like my Kona for these conditions, but the OP might not.

As far as rig goes, it makes sense to have a carbon boom and fitting masts. A race sail might not fit the OP goals however. They a ...

Another thing which would really help is if we encouraged sailmakers to build longboard-optimized sails - longer booms, tighter leeches and fuller shapes. I recently picked up a used Ezzy Zephyr (7.5) ...

OK. I'll answer my own question. Steve G. got top 10 in the 2016 USWA Nationals slalom event on a Kona with a Kona 9.0. Would he have done better on a slalom board? Sure. But it shows the po ...
