First week, Sonntag SL-P tested

First week of windsurfing in good tempratures, together with Joerg on the water, also some swimming in the water :). Also some nice time onshore sharing our findings. Good thing I have sailed all boards&sails in 4 sessions, starting to understand why many use the RS:Racing E2.

Now 2 good session with the evo2 7.0 and it is sooo much easier and less exhausting. Upwind it has the same windrange as the 6.2 RSS. For fixed courses the RS:Racing is the betting choise in competition, this is the basic feeling I have got now. Just for recordhunting or Strand Horst USM/Fsm the RS:Slalom would be my favorite.

I have tested yesterday the lowwind Sonntag fin SL-P 44cm, underneath the starboard isonic 122. The overall performance was really good, on longer distance there was almost no speed  difference with my supertuned Falcon 91+ sonntag SL-S 340. I did one crazy run in the middle of open water 31kn in lowwind. The SL-P(ower) had sooo much power, something different to the SL-S feeling. Both Joerg and me couldn't spin-out the new SL-P design,  how hard we pushed. Even the feeling was there the harder I pushed the better the speed. The stability was great on all courses (for my liking it was a bit to stable, I would prefer a bit less rake) for real slalom and matchracing we think this extra stability is good. Lets see what Sarah, Patrick and Wolfgang think.
