Finian Blog words
I am currently in Maui with my family. The conditions for slalom
training since the New Year have been not bad, especially for January,
and we expect a new trade wind cycle to begin tomorrow. I have been
putting the new XF V3 112 thru some quite rigorous training in
sometimes very challenging conditions and I must admit I am impressed.
The 135 has also been on the water several times and this board looks
set to be very competitive this year. Both boards have the potential
to win so now it is about putting in the work and hopefully get the
desired result in the first event of the year, Vietnam.
Normally the start of our year is later so this is a refreshing change
that will surely get the main players to show their cards early in the
season, which is exciting whether looking from the inside or the
outside. I think this is the year where there can be multiple event
winners and tight points until the end in the race for the title so
keep tuned and see how it all unfolds as I will begin to write on this
blog from time to time to keep some 'insider' views coming your way.
Good sailing and all the best, Finian
