Looks like the conditions I'd like.  For jibe learning this seems perfect.  That is the light air picture

New England, specifically Eastern CT, has been terrible for this wind-wing passion and learning.  2 days on and then 4 weeks OFF. 

This is the reason I moved West.

Tropical Storm turned Hurricane Isaias provided some relief.  The wind jumped from 10 to 40 mph with gusts to 60.  Liquid smoke.  And then the power went out.  Nothing to do but Downwind Connecticut Style.

For confused water I really like the BlackfishPaddles Salish in 500 and 460
 Won't  break the bank and work very nicely.
Their Viento model is the equivalent of the Uv82

Ingenuity and recycling in Portugal at Rui Meira Pro Center.

what is your boom recycled from -- I don't recognize it?

It is not my boom by the way, I am just a tourist. It is the half of a old windsurfing boom.

I've paddled more than 8 miles on a 9-6 Red Compsct!

They are fine for casual paddoing. The board itself if very light but everything else about the package is not, so it ends up weighing quite a lot in the backpack. You wouldn't want to be trekking far with it..

Haha yeah I'm planning to put it into another backpack that's more suitable for carrying the weight! I'm used to hauling 50lbs so I'm not too worried about it being heavy. My current isup is just too tall to fit in mine! Glad to hear it's good for casual paddling. :)

Wait a few weeks. 2021 Red will come out late Sept. A few updates.

Thanks so much for this info! I suppose I can wait a few more weeks...
Even better would be the kind of handles SIC uses--a round dish with a bridge. My SIC manta foilboard has live2surf's style handle on the deck, but no bottom handle. I'm going to put one in.

I found a picture of the "round dish with a bridge" SUP handles that SIC uses. It is similar conceptually to the BluePlanet handle though much nicer looking and considerably more minimal.  That is a beautiful and sensible handle.

Now I wonder if those are for sale, haha. If not, I think I may try to make the SIC SUP handle part if I can find an appropriate oval 'dish' to use as a mold for vacuum bagging the dish portion of the part. Adding the top 'bridge' handle will be easy as a second step.

Not that I have seen but this comparison between the NL and GL was really good if this Instagram Story is still around... those NL wings are thin!

So if I am mainly paddling in confused conditions the UV is better?
