HI Starboard Team

i read this : w w w.star-board.com/AutumnWinter2011/news_events/read.php?threadid=9556

Kevin says : "i took out my 9.3 in 8 to 14 knots of wind with pretty flat water. With the 9.3 I blasted up to 28.8, in such light wind I was like wow! that is pretty amazing"

i suppose is it a 9,3 Vapor 2010? Can Kevin confirm ??

it is unfortunate that there have no video of the test of kevin? to see the behavior of the board on water, it would be great .

I have a hard time believing that Kevin use the same fins a Drake Venom 420 for 7,6 and 9,3 sails and

on the starboar website : w w w .star-board.com/SpringSummer2011/products/board_futura.php

it is write that recommended sails range are 5.5-9.0 so does the Futura 2011 122 really support a 9,3m2 ??? and 9,3 in test Kevin ?????

What is the ISAF volume of futura 2011 122 ? 122L litlle more or little less ??


SURF GERMANY write for the 133 futura An exceptionally stable, light-wind board that needs some body tension to ride the chop. The bigger fin sometimes requires a little more force as well.

is it the same think for the 122 about ridding shop?

Best regard
Ronan

Hi Ronan,

Yes the 9.3 can be use on the Futura 122, I use it most of the time with NCX 9.0 and Turbo 9.2 due to the fact I am in Thailand and is not so windy place. And use Drake Venom 44.

Volume is not the more important key to choose your sail, it's more the width of the board at the max and tail.

Hope this help

All the best
