Wasted resource

You know its funny how sailors look at the weather, even though its impossible to sail. You'd think we would know better and just ignore it, but there's something in my mind that can't leave well enough alone.

I awoke to the little voice in the back of my head saying, "Hey, its gonna be windy today. REALLY windy..." Checking the weather and whoa! We do have wind today ... 25-35 with gusts to 50.

Now I just need to find some water thats not frozen over!

Hello David,

I am very interested in wavetwin 99 liters. I am from Galicia (Spain), we have good conditions here, good waves but wind is not strong. Some friends have the RRD Cult 99 and they are very happy with that board in light-medium wind conditions, but this board is not for sale now. I have the RRD FW 102 liters for that days, I am happy but turns are the problem, I changed the fin, but it's not a wave board. I think RRD Wavetwin could be a better choice, but I don't find information about that board. It looks too short, and I think this could be a problem for early planning. What do you think?. Do you have a good experience with no planning conditions ( < 14 knots)? And with medium winds ( 14-20 knots) ?

Thanks in advance,
