The second day has dawned in North Wales and the pro competitors are joined by strong fleets of amateurs, women, masters and youths for the first stage of the BWA tour. Sailors are busy preparing for the competition, but so far the conditions are yet to play ball.
However, Boards will still be bringing you lots of news and latest info.
Below, you can check out the Simmer Frugal, which is their new wave board focussed on giving performance in less than perfect conditions. This is the 77litre, which has 5 fin boxes so you can choose your fin configuration; note the length, it’s only 210 long!
The Tabou Da Curve also has 5 fin boxes, this one is 86 litre and it’s a completely new shape, it has a flatter rocker, is faster but still turns well. Thomas Traversa has been involved with the development and it will be available in September.
