Flying took me one long afternoon session. But getting the tacks, jibes and such took me a few more sessions.
What is your favorite gear combination and why?
For now, Fanatic sky wing 5' with 1250/250 on a long mast and a Duotone echo for a wing. Best combination that i found for SPEED-STABILITY and just a lot of fun.

High wind and big swell sessions at wijk aan zee with lots of buddy's to share the stoke!

I think Wing profile stability is a big thing and the Duotone Echo's with booms are definitely a step in the right direction.
