Wojtek Brzozowski POL 10 won Polish formula champion title in Sopot. Here are Wojtek’s comments of the race and his trimming tips:
“The conditions were very unstable and difficult, ranging from 3 to 35 knots with shifts up to 90 degrees so it was more up to luck than real speed of the riders but i enjoyed the championships very much and my setup worked really well when the wind was actually there:) I was on Neil Pryde evo III and IV, Starboard 167wide and 2 BOSS B5, both of them just 70 but the board deliveres tons of power so light and slippery fin is required. For 12 and lighter stuff i used S- – rake 8 deg. and for 10,7 S- rake 10,5 deg. With straps all the way back and mast track 5 cm forward from recommendation, it was flying like a slalom board. BOSS B5 70 proved to be slippery and fast with great upwind performance. The only fin that i really like on the new board.”
