Hi,
A question for all that have been using 4m2 Rise:
What would be the windrange of a 4m2 Rise? Take into the consideration that I can use my 8m2 Rise from 2008 from 15 to 35 knots with Mako classic , I am 70+ kg.
Is there a big difference between 08 and 09 in the size 4?
Greetings,
Jaros

I saw Richard from OR out on a 4m in 35-40kn and he was working it all over the place.
Probably looking at 40-50kn, just a guess though.

Tough to supply information on wind ranges, as there are too many variables involved. Not to mention in my experience two people can have a completely different idea of how strong the wind really is…....smile

At 67 kgs with a 5’6 surfboard the 4m starts working for me in about 20 knots. To date the strongest wind I have used it in is about 30 knots, and of course I was no where near the top end limit.

Cheers,

Evan
