I replied to your other message this morning, sorry, I thought it would have had the full email trail included. Doh!
On another note, I got the chance to take out my Session 2.0 yesterday for the first time and I love it. I was on a Dakine fusion before ( I think its the fusion) and the difference is amazing. Much much more comfy and I can see me changing to waist only format in the not too distant future.
Also, being part hobbit, I found the shorter length of the hook to be better for me. I’ve always struggled by about an inch or so to get full depower on the bar unless I was riding with some 5th line and depower above the bar as my arms are just a tad too short. Now, no problems, its great .
I also ended up trying a friends 08 10m rise as the wind was at that point where I could have been on either of my 8m or my 12m diablo (about 25mph) unfortunately I second guessed myself again and took out the 8m. Should have been the 12. But one of the girls lent me her 10m Rise as I couldn’t be bothered to inflate the 12. What a revelation. I know I was slightly underpowered on the 8 and couldn’t get upwind, but the Rise was just awesome. So much depower available but so responsive as well. Up to that point my session was mediocre at best. With the Rise I came off the water with a big smile.
Only one problem now. I need a Rise. That is need, not want lol.
Oh, and for those of you not on faceplant. Whilst the rest of us were out on the water, Mr Vine was checking out half naked rednecks with mullets on the web…...........
