Hi Starboard-Team!

I have the chance to get an ISonic 135 from 2006. This board will replace my Hypersonic 111. I will use the ISonic with 8.5 and 7.5 sails on my home-lake (conditions from flat to little chop).

My second board for "higher winds" is the Carve 111 (2006).

My questions:
Should I wait for the IS122 (2008) or should I get the IS135 (2006)?
What about the Futura 133 to complement my Carve?


Thanks for your replies...!

Nobody to comment my questions?
Please help me deciding, which board to get!

THANKS a lot.

Even if your a heavy weight, I think the iS135 might not be to much fun with a 7.5m as its such a big board. The iS135 is more for 8m to 10m light winds. The iS122 will feel much nicer with a 7.5m & 8.5m and will be more controlable when the wind picks up, but still be v-good in light winds.

Hi Marc!

Thx for your reply.
You are right - IS135 maybe too big for me (75kg).
I am still not quite sure, whether to get the IS122 or the Futura 133. The Futura is cheaper and - according to the first testresults - not that much slower than the IS.

Cheers, Andreas

How about swapping both your C111 & HS111 for a iS111 ( wider tailed 08 model). At 75kg the iS111 should still have good light wind performance, and just about work with a 6.5m (& small fin) in stronger winds? Would make choosing which board to use real easy!!

Just a thought. Cheers
