Bobby at Perfect Wave is in the process of designing some new race boards. He is taking design ideas from myself and the rest of the PW team... I plan on eventually racing on these missiles, but until then, I'll mostly be racing the new Bark Dominator 14 footer made by Surftech. Thanks to Bobby for getting me set up with Surftech! This new 14 is almost as fast as my 3 year old Bark 18 and downwinds even better. It weighed in at about 24 pounds w/o fin.
I've got about 3 hours on it in two days and so far so good. The quality is outstanding as is anything Joe Bark puts his name on.
See ya on the water.
I'll post more info when it becomes available...
