2012 gear

So Far I was lucky to try already a lot of new 2012 slalom gear!! We have a perfect winter here, in south of france with wind non stop the last 2 months with waves and not so cold weather.

In my home spots, there is a lot of passionate slalom racers so I have all the gear from each brand to try. This is really nice for R&D to test products from other brand and see how my Tabou boards and gaastra sail work and hwo we can improve them continuously. Planchemag magazine also have all the new gear to test for his report.
So I am pretty happy with new manta 71 and 84. Boards have changed a lot this year (new rocker on the noze area, new outline, new straps positions and new cut for the 84). Boards have much more low end and are more fast on flat water (still really easy on chop like before).
I also tryed the new production vapor 7,9 and sail improve a lot! it is much lighter on the hand, speed is amazing on downwind and sail have better low end (bad point of last year). I am sure I can improve again the performances of it in low end by tunning it step by step.

I will have all my own gear during the next weeks and be able to train with it soon.
First Pwa event will be in May in korea because Vietnam event moved in November, so there is no ruch (last year I got my ail 3 days before the first event only!!).

I plan to go to Maui for some weeks soon…
