The racing guys came up from Cape town on Sunday and raced in the strongest, wildest wind and water conditions we've seen for some time. Most of the locals were content to watch, preferring not to break limbs and equipment. Andy joined in but took a 96l 3S LTD. He changed only the fin on the board but retained the single strap at the back and inward front strap positions. All in all the most unlikely race board ever seen but despite this he managed to hang with the field. Unbelievable! He also nailed every gybe in the wild water planing easily out of each. This has been a real eye opener to everyone and attests to what a phenomenal board the 3S is. Here is a board designed for waves, tricks and easy blasting hanging with the big guys on a slalom strip! Speed, comfort, fun and fantastic gybing. What more could any sailor ask for. Obviously you would not choose this board for normal racing but when the conditions get hectic or you want maximum fun this board has to be on your short list. Well done Tabou. Class all the way.
