As I mentioned in the Sardinia thread, I just spent about a week there, sailing from the ProCenter:

http://www.procenter.it/

All the boards are 2014 RRD boards. I purchased the "Pro" equipment package, which permitted me to sail the carbon versions of the boards.

I was completely stunned by how much I liked the RRD boards - every board I sailed was just a pleasure to sail. I was especially impressed by how easy they were to jibe - even the X-Fire LTD 105 ( a relatively racey board) with straps all the way back and outboard jibed beautifully.

the other boards i sailed were mostly the Free Style Wave 100 and 94, and the Fire Wave 82.

I am enjoying a Firemove 122 this year. The more I sail it, the more I realize that my older boards are expendable.

I would love to try a Firestorm of around the same volume.

I purchased a 2014 RRD FSW wood this summer and love it. I sail 4.0 to 5.8 wave sails on it and love it. Quick to plane, fast, manuverable and smooth, with that RRD comfortable ride that you hear about. This is my forth RRD FSW that I have owned, and it is the best yet, and that is saying lots. I have demo'd many other boards in this style, but the RRD's are special for their easy going yet high performance nature. You don't have to be a pro to appreciate one.........

My 2014 RRD fire Storm ltd broke after 15 times in the water. It delaminated and cracked in front of the back foot strap. I'm a flat water lake guy and never jumped the board. Eva the board lady dissected and examined this board and found several flaws. Most notable was a butt joint in the foam in the high stress area right where it broke. It took over six months to get this resolved with RRD, but they did make it right. Lets hope this was an isolated thing. On the plus side, I got this board new from second wind Maui. Kevin was extremely helpful and stood by me every step of the way. We all should support his shop when we head over there....
