Sketchy conditions are the best indicator of the performance of your equipment, as Jérôme could experience in a session that did not go as planned.
“This weekend I started my sesh in 30 knots with the 4m Neutra v2, Fluid M-T and the Magic Stab Fluid H 38… But there was an unexpected change in the weather, the wind suddenly dropped and blew in all directions.
Sitting in the water, I waited on my gear, waited… A few small gusts at 15 knots for over 10 to 15 seconds periods, nothing more, nightmare conditions. To get it over with, I tried pumping in those small gusts, I tried my hardest and to my surprise I managed to take off with the 950cm Fluid M-T, huuuuge relief.
“The glide of the stab completely unleashes the Fluid M-T”
Then I was able to fly for a long time in calm parts of the spot, totally glassy, hard to believe, the glide of the stab completely unleashes the Fluid M-T, transforming the speed into lift. Just incredible, I never thought I would fly in these conditions with a 4m.”
