Just been reading up on this board. It seems that the freeride comes with retractable centreboard or fixed Tuttle centre fin, and that the "planing" version is the one with the fixed Tuttle fin.

I used to have the 125 and I'm pretty sure I remember it had the length of 229 printed on it as well. I assumed the final model ended up 2cm longer than the 105.

Searching Older Forum Posts

Hi team

I know this has been covered, but previous "work arounds" to view pre-2006 forum posts no longer seem to work.

How can I view posts prior to August 2006?

regards,
