I'm glad somebody asked. I have just borrowed an old starfish 90(?) and though it was wonderful. I'm not a wave expert so I'm not sure how valuable my opinion will be. So far have ridden it only once, Mushy waves, onshore wind, overpowered with 5.4m (but that's my only sail at the moment). Tough as old boots and although maybe a little heavy it was still great fun. Some great jumping, always landed soft. Seems very loose, easy to make really tight planing jibes and managed to keep upwind reasonably well. Not so fast in a straight line but then i suppose that's expected.

I was somewhat overpowered so it was up on a plane almost immediately. I didn't really have any lulls long enough for it to come off a plane.
