I don't think Swapmeet prices will change because Dave has boards for sale. Used stuff in HR is worth what it's worth.

Looking forward to the first couple Swaps.

Thanks to Dave at Windance for being there.

Sounds to me like a good step down from the FSW. I have its predecessor, a 72L Cult 50. I love it down to 3.7 at my 190#, where you may be using a 3.2. If it's rough in chop, which I doubt, you can always slap on an extra layer of padding on top of the stock pads.

REEELY? Is that first one worth the effort, or is it just a grip'n'grin for locals just out of hibernation or down off the mountain?

Sometimes the weather can be nice. Maybe sail if you're lucky. Catch up with people you haven't seen in a few months. We go with no expectations, no disappointments.

That describes my impressions to a T. I've found the other 5 much more worthwhile if any distance is involved.

this announcement amazes me. I have heard about Jeri as a rather remote resort where you are at an advantage renting a black market 4 wheeler and driving a couple hundred miles along the beach where no roads lead to your destination. How do they airlift a collection like that out of Brazil and still make it worth while to sell them?

That's a good question. Maybe Windance can answer it. Their website does say "boat", so maybe they're coming all the way from Jeri on a boat or two.

It's not something I'll get to use much, but do need for those days when my 84L FSW feels too big.

Or when smaller is just more fun. I tend to go as small as the conditions will allow, if the terrain warrants it.

Contrary to isobars comments, I find everything about the new shapes to be far superior to older board models.

Yes, I said everything!

When all is said and done, more is always said by Isobars!
