3.0/5

The 2008 boards produced by Mistral are built with versatility and performance in mind. They blend perfectly power and maneuverability to suit a large range of riders and style. Beginner ones can find the perfect user friendly board to feel safe out on the water, while extreme riders can choose a board which offers extra power for hardcore moves. 

The board has a wider shape and longer narrower outlines which increase longitudinal stability. The volume is proportionally distributes, so the board floats nicely and can support a heavier rider.  The rounded pin tip and pintail make the board take maximum advantage of the water flow and offer a very fast, drag free glide. Mistral has used a fast rocker on the Screamer as well as a decreased V design for extra power and huge top speed. Once it is powered up, the board accelerates very fast and reaches intense speeds in no time. Also, the board has plenty of pop for early planning, jumps or other tricks. A perfect power delivery is assured by the innovative tucked quad rails. Although the Mistral Screamer is very powerful and fast and intended for advanced freeriders, it is easy to control and very stable, so it can be used without problems by intermediate sailors too. The board is very responsive and accurate and generates positive feedback at any command. The rider has a direct and precise control the whole time, and no matter what tricks he performs or how fast he runs, the board remains predictable and doesn’t lose grip. The manufacturer used the innovative deck channels on the board to make it extra stiff and to balance pressure distribution on the deck. The Screamer feels very comfortable due to the deck shape and the new M Dot Air Pod pads.

The Mistral Screamer has it all to deliver a great freeride session: it is powerful, reliable, fast and extra maneuverable. The board comes in composite sandwich structure or in RD (Red Dot) Edition which is lighter and offers pro performance.

It is the only 2008 Mistral board I’ve tried. It suits beginners and advanced sailors. Suits more the advanced ones in my opinion. It is stable but you can’t steer it without a bit effort, especially at high speeds. At the same time I...more
