MISTRAL 2011 guns

Found on one of my favorite websites more info about the mistral guns. First interesting fact, design Chris Lockwood and shape James Hooper, I did see some shape details that reminds me of my very own Carbon Art Speed 44. Interesting to see mistral dropped the idea of the old AB+ speed design. The lockwood design always worked great for me.

Second interesting fact is the tiny little tail... How small is the smallest speedboard, 42 or 38 or maybe even 35cm wide??? I am actually convinced they look much smaller than my W44.

Lets hope for more action video/ pictures of speedteam Mistral in Luderitz. Interesting for sure, especially when these boards will be made for production/ customers, this would mean Lockwood his design will be available in a lot of surfshops.

  1. Ik vermoed zelfs dat de eerste foto een carbon art speed is met een mistral logo opgezet. Kijk maar naar de voetpad's en de vorm van de neus. Dat is net als mijn carbon art sp44.
