everyone that's had one either keeps it, or regretted selling theirs. i'd suggest sailing a few other boards in some really widely ranging conditions then going back to it before selling. happened to me.

that saying, the 95 is a perfect board too.

Fanatic Allwave looks cool. I'm interested to know how it works, both as a lightwind wave board and an SUP. I can't find any info on the internet, not even a site or shop to purchase the boards (outside of Europe and Australia).

Can any of the more experienced sloggers offer some advise...
I want to get an ultralight wind wave board (not sup) for 0-15 knots wind and up to head high waves and wondering what volume is ideal? Do you reach a point where going beyond a certain volume above your bodyweight has no extra benefit? What about width, is this the key to slogging stability? And how wide is to wide to do a decent bottom turn.
I am 78kg.
Thanks

I had many discussions with friends and would recommend you to check out a couple videos on this blog it will show you what you need to sails almost every day. I could off course slog around with 88 kg in 5 t0 15 miles wind on a 90 liter wave board or catch a couple waves but on a sealion you get hundreds of waves you can not get on a smaller board and it turns very agressive if you use it correctly. Do the speed it can get waves that usually roll under you and as I dont spend to much time in the water swimming haha its actually great if the water gets colder.

Speaking of larrge RRD FSW.
Anyone have personal light wind wave sailing experience with 120l RRD FSW? Currently own 85l RRD FSW and love it. Regardless of board size I won’t be slashing up the waves…just catching some and a few turns is all I ask.

I purchased an AllWave from JimK at Extreme Windsurfing in NJ - http://www.extremewindsurfing.com/ . I got a great deal and good advice from Jim on adding a sailing fin to the setup.

Many of you may recognize JimK, he's been in the windsurfing business for many years. Just got a note from Jim today that my 9'10" AllWave is on the way. He has some of the shorter Fanatic AllWave SUPs in stock also.

I definitely won't be taking this board out in overhead conditions, but I'll let ya know how it's working for 2-5 feet.
