Anybody in 100kg weight bracket any feedback on Kode 113 in high winds and/or waves ???

I`m 103kg and thinking of this board to replace 105 litre wave board.. Sail will be mainly 5 to 6 metre but occasionally 4.5 and very occasionally 4.2 !!!

Intermediate to advanced sailor. (Advanced in yewars anyhow )

Thanks

I have a 2011 code 113 wood, and use it with a 7.2 and 6.0. Have used it in flat water and choppy conditions.
Haven't tried any smaller sail size on it though. But think a 5.2 will be OK. For smaller sizes I would have considered a less vol. board. My weight is 80 kg. The code 113 has a "loose" feeling and is very maneuverable. Nice and easy for fast small radius jiibes and fairly fast. Can recommend this board, bot not for sail sized below 5....

I have a kode 112 2010 wood karbon: I have used it with 8.0(fairly good match) 6.5(perfect match) and 5.5(fairly god match with a 33 cm fin) All ncx.

Maybe its possible to go even smaller if you take an even smaller fin?

By the way - the board is both fast and loose.

Probably a bit different but I used kombat 105 as high wind board for 2 or 3 seasons. It was fine, no problems down to 4.2; ideal around 5 to 6 with 100k on it..

Any board is completely different in nearly all respects with "heavyweights" on them.. Sail range (IMO) for a 100k rider is perhaps 1 metre smaller (upper and lower) compared to an 80k rider..

I`ve considered kode myself !!! 113 or 103 ???? (113 is Tuttle !!!)

I'm looking for the same thing, seems to me manufactures are forgetting about us 100Kg plus sailors when it comes to high winds & wave sailing.

i think u should look at the 102/103 for the sail sizes you list. the width makes up for a lot of volume in planing power and still rips turns. A/E box lets you use real wave fins. i'm 95kg and love my 102 0n 5.8, 6.3 7.0. you will still slog it home if yhe wind dies.

I`m not convinced about recommending 103 litres for a 103 kg sailor; sure it would work and work well in good conditions but it reflects situation with high wind/wave boards for heavy weights...There isnt the choice available for over 100kg people..

A 80kg sailor would have an 80 litre board but only for quite high winds/big waves...He`d have a 90 (ish) wave board for general use.. (mathematically thats akin tro 115 ish for 103kg)

If the 113 was more wave biased I`d recommend it but it aint ????!!!

Is there a 115 litre wave board on market ???
