Thanks for that, Chris.

Do you have a release window for these yet? Will it be sometime after the Kitesurf show in Hatteras?

ATB,
Sam

I'd say the Freeride is a bit too long and the Freestyle is a bit too short
All are fairly wide which is good plus
Pointy ends are a bit of inconvenience for handling and travel
All are fiberglass which means potentially more weight with all good and bad it entails

Short fins should assume a good concave profile but no info about rocker/concave on that page. I'm sure it's available somewhere

All said it's just my perception, interesting boards, I'd look closer or try
