I have a 105L RRD wind willow and the wretched thing is de-laminating after 3 1/2 yrs, total crap construction.

Anyone have any idea who is making a 105l full on wave board, no freestyle, 100% wave?

Any advice appreciated and stores?

Thx

I had a conversation with Brian, the manager at OceanAir in Hatteras and my Sumo came up. He asked if it wasn't a wave board. Given that it is an Angulo board, I thought for a minute and said Yes. Now that I've used the 125 some, I think that the 105 might fit that bill.



I know Brian , I'll have to ask him how that conversation went . I take it that it was over the phone and not face to face ? I would hope you weren't just wasting his time for something to do seeing as he was at work.

Tabou 3S, either 97 or 107L, probably in the crossover range.

Curious on the de-lam

any thing to point to its cause ?

I have seen and heard nothing but good things on the Sumo 105.

Airhead, I have never finished a post of yours. Your opinions and statements aren't any more valuable than those from any common airhead.


Ouch , that stings ! Common airhead -zing Laughing Hey why don't you post some digital pics of the wonderful quiver of sailing gear you profess to own ? I'm sure others would like to see it also. I'm positive anyone as tech savvy as you has a digital camera .

Seems your response also indicates that you were wasting Brians time , that sucks , he has no choice but to answer the phone and listen to your BS . I bet you just love a shop with an 800 # , I'll give him a heads up so possibly he can avoid you in the future.

Angulo says that the Sumo range is freeride, the 105 "may" fit Crossover the Super Gu comes in a 102L, may more closely fit the ticket should you "have " to ride a Angulo. Windance or Angula Hawaii.

Tabou 3S !!

Al I say: Quatro wave 92L. I am (dry) 210Lbs and it easily works with a 6.2. Even in super light winds it get's me out and over the whitwater without any problem. This is a hardcore full-on wave board, no compromises, so it RIPS!!!

Does anyone know why US boxes seem to be standard or at least most prevalent on even larger wave boards rather than the powerbox or another cavity box which would at least allow you the option of using a bigger fin under certain conditions?

Probably for the same reason US fin boxes are used in smaller wave boards, they are wave boards and the US box allows you to set up the fin forward or back in the box to suit your ride for the conditions.
