Speedsurfers Poll

Not soo long ago the speedsurfingblog readers voted in this poll http://www.speedsurfingblog.com/2010/12/poll-about-speedsurfing.html

Now it is time to use the 146 votes and draw some conclusions:

  • 95% does speedsurf
  • 44% uses speedsurfing equipment (speedboard, speedfins or speedsails, etc)
  • 66% (also) uses slalomequipment for speedsurfing
  • 30% only uses slalomequipment for speedsurfing
  • 87% uses slalom/ freerace/ freeride equipment for speedsurfing
  • 8% only uses specialized speedequipment
30% only uses slalomequipment vs 8% only uses speedequipment = +- 4:1
87% uses slalom/freerace/freeride vs 44% uses speedequipment= +- 2:1

This is close to what I believe, when considering a slalomequipment range often involves 3 boards - 4 sails versus speedequipment range involves 1 maybe 2 boards and sails. I believe in speedsurfing we have this spreading speedequipment : slalomequipment = 1:3. And this could be interesting for development, this misuse of slalomequipment for speed.
