Hey there
Watched your new video on the Futura on the website. Saw that it was used with an Essy sail. Planning to buy same combination, so could you tell which size of board and sail was in the video? And size of sail, please?

Hi Nbtgm1,

The Futura was a 101 with a 6.5;

All the best

Thanks for info

I am actually considering the 121.

Read your recent posted review (congrat) where they noted that the board behaved better with sails below 7.5.

Which sail size would be ideal, and which would be high wind alternative?

I am 190cm, 85 kg

Thanks

Hi Thorvald

I am 90 kgs and my favorite sail in light winds on this board is the Ncx 9.0. The sail feel very ligth and gliding like Slalom sail without the weight. Then I use Ncx 7.5 when is more windy.
All the best

Hi Remy,

Can you explain why you use the ncx 9.0 instead of turbo 9.2?

I'm looking for a bigger sail above my overdrive 7.5 on a Futura 122 for the light wind days.
I could use some advice on witch sail to buy: Ncx 9.0, turbo 8.6 or 9.2?
My weight is 83 kgs.

Thanks,
Evert

Hi Evert,

Just question of feeling, I like both but my favorite is the NCX Pro 9.0, the sail is very light in your hand and very fast. This sail give me the feeling of the slalom sails but extremelly light.

If you have to choose that will be between Ncx 9.0 and Turbo 8.6.

Hope this help

All the best
