I just recieved my copy of LaserCoach 2000 and have been studying it quite intently. Within the last couple of months there was a thread on this forum jokingly dismissing somone making a claim that the Laser could do 40mph. Well under the technique section on the LC2000 disk there is a video clip under the, subsiquent reaching section, of these world class laserites cranking in strong winds. Even the narrator states that they only had a 70HP motor on the back of the chase boat and where having a real problem keeping up. When I say these guys where cranking I mean they were MOVING. Surfing some pretty descent sized waves...it appears as if they are totally out of control always planning it even appears as if they are airborn at times as they crest these waves. The clip is truly amazing. They even have this guy bow dive at the end.....at high speed. I would love to get and esimate of what there speed was. Its gotta be somwhere in the 30's.
