Hi Remi,
The Futura´s 141 from 2009 to 2012 (2013) became over the time thinner in the mast foot area. Does this mean that the volume from the nose has moved more to the tail of the board?
I am asking because my F144 (2009) is my light wind (to middle wind) board. For my weight, 95 kg and wind conditions with 8.7 m2 the F144 is a perfect multipurpose board. I am now intending to buy a new F141 but I am a bit afraid that less nose volume in the newer F141 brings in non glinging conditions the nose to dive.

Can you say something on the volume distribution on the new F141 please?

Thanks in advance
Christian

Hi Christian,

I am a bit ligther than you but use bigger sail on it (Turbo 9.2) and you can be sure that the board doesn't dive in non planning mode.

Hope this help

All the best

Thanks a lot for your reply, Remi!
Will wait now for the 2013 Futuras coming to Germany.

Best Retards
