      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. AC36 - The Venue

    no, it's being used next year in the AC50 Larry circuit
  2. pictures or it didn't happen. Dude
  3. anyway, i'll wait till it happens and i see a picture. Just like Larry's circus.
  4. and his ass is just about dragging due to the lever arm from the wishbone
  5. oh. you should be in the AC50 circus of un-substantiated pipe dream forum then. You always debate based on your supreme knowledge of everything that is too informed to share any solid facts. par for your course. your head is so big it's got it's own weather system
  6. are you fucking dumb as a sack of fucking hammers, show me a windsurfer with "extreme cant" like you were talking about. fucking windsurfers
  7. So the top picture here, (couldn't seem to find the heart to [snip] her, shows a windsurfer with moderate windward cant, much less than 45 i reckon. Do you have any pictures of extreme windward cant on a windsurf board where the wing is starting to break surface as you mentioned?
  8. The picture that ROBG posted and you commented on has been pointed out to be canted downwind. I have seen many times top racers in NZ with way over 45 degrees of windward cant, just couldn't find a picture. Of course you know that I use pictures to debate with rather than asserting my opinion.
  9. a quick and dirty diagram based on the AC75class rule figure 12.1: seems you could get almost 45% of cant within the box (yellow line), sacrificing a bit of span, but having the end of the arm almost vertical. This would keep the foil wing well below surface.
  10. The kiters seem to have above 45% of cant on upwind. source
  11. yea, you seem to have the wind direction a little bit confused surf sailor...that's draggin him downwind. no matter
  12. Team Australia

    WTF and then you call some businessmen dodgy
  13. how will a windsurfer get extreme cant on the foil?

    a big display like some of the AIS I have seen, Time to Closest Approach, Distance at Closest Approach, alarms when distance at closest approach is less than ??. It's a user interface challenge, i know a few companies that could cook up a sweet solution, i'm sure this is an easy dev problem.
