How about "The Deadliest Sin"?

Oooo...that's a quality name! But I've practiced temperance and been frugal in order to acquire this board (see the Longboard Lust series, in which I denied myself a Kona...an object of Horse Joe's affections.)
Thank you for the suggestion, but I'm still hunting.

Call it Fred. "Hey Fred, do want to go sailing today? Nah, I'll just hang by the beach and watch the wahines walk by."

Looks very interesting. Have you tried the board using double footstraps on the rear? If so, what differences do you notice?

Robert, I haven't had a chance to play with the footstraps much (they felt great one spot back from full forward in the center). It's such a little board that I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but the next time the wind is 25K+ and I'm at a flatwater location I'll double up, move all the straps back, and sail with a GPS to see how fast I can wind the thing up.

How about "Seventy-Seventh Heaven" then?

Another good one from Litoralis!

OK You have made one of the best decisions of your life! Fanatic are without a doubt the best boards on the market right now (you cannot say I am biased cos my husband is the local importer cos I sail a Mistral Synchro!). Seriously speaking they are so much a cut above most other brands. Freestyle wave is also the best decision cos its much more versatile. Although my son has the all out wave equivalent he is just 16 weighing about 58 kilos and his other board is a pure freestyle board so he didnt need an all rounder for strong wind. Also I think that unless you have Hawaiin type conditions a Freestyle Wave is far more suitable. Someone commented on the two footstraps at the back - DONT (I know people have different opinions so they will probably say otherwise). You can feel the board so much better with just the one strap - well thats my opinion. I hope you get some really good wind now so you can enjoy it.
