Hello @craig ,
I have the following dilemma to solve. I chose the Duotone/Fanatic combo for all my windsurfing gear (one board, two sails so far) for various reasons.
I am looking to get a lightwind board that can also be used for foiling to complete my small quiver.
My main choice is the Falcon Lightwind, however this is were the dilemma arose.
The Falcon LW is positioned as a slalom board for racing when reading the text on the website. The only comparable board is the JP Super Lighwind that is on the other hand positioned as a freeride oriented board.
At the same time, when looking at the two boards they appear to be nearly identical, similar shape, same construction even the position of the footstrap insert seems to be the same, the only difference that I could find is the tail cutouts.
Is this an accurate observation in your opinion, can I buy the Falcon LW and use it as my ultimate light wind freeride board?
The implication is that if I was to buy the JP I would likely also buy the relevant JP foil, if Falcon then Fanatic foil.
Thanks in advance,
