Ollie,
Most any windsurfing shop has plenty of spare "A" box/"E" box fin nuts and screws.
They have them in metric threads and unified threads so be sure to get the plate nut
that has the same...

It's a #3 Phillips driver with a hardened and treated tip.....at least that's what it is in the USA.
You should be able to purchase one at any high end tool shop.

Slalom Board?

Hi Del,
I'm not sure it's quite as easy as you are making it sound.
What size rig are you planning to use in 25 knots of wind?
Race sail with several cambers?
Camberless Free Race sails?

david,
1 meter in front of the existing mast box might work, but perhaps it would be better to go for a sail
with your heaviest daughter and see where the board trims out.
Hope you plan to get a...

Hi StarScream,
Your little brother better weigh only about 60-70 lbs.
Otherwise the Flare 93 is simply too small to be a good beginner board.
The Flare is all about doing freestyle tricks, so...

Unreg,
Looks to me like you have not DOWNHAULED your sail nearly enough.
All the loose horizontal folds at the back of the luff sleeve indicate the mast
needs to bent significantly more.
If there...

Would an iSonic 137 be a Mistake?

Allessandro;
Until you can jibe your JP Excite 145 at least some of the time, and also
develop water starting skills, the iSonic 137 is probably a bit too advanced
a board for you to easily...

Hi Tom,
Might need to go to a larger dealer like Big Winds, in the Gorge.

they can order it....

Take a look at the Futura 117 and the Atomic IQ 114. Both are wider than the Carve 111 so they may work for your son to up haul now, and may be very good for you when the wind increases.

Hi Tom,
For 5.0-7.5 conditions the Futura 107 or 117 would be good choices, but the 107 is a long ways
from your Ultrasonic, so it might be better to lean toward the 117 since you are probably...

addieboy,
I took another look at your weight, your sail size, and your JP Excite Ride 120L that
is 68.5 cm tail width.
You seem to be sailing on salt/sea water so buoyancy is not an issue here....

Take a bar of bath soap and rub the screws against the soap as a lubricant.

The further you lean/rake it back the more/faster your board will turn upwind and
the less speed you will lose.
