Hi, I was about to buy a Futura 133 but the shop sold the last one before I managed to get there, so I buyed a Carve (2005) 121.
I'm not a pro windsurfer so I'd like to know if I did a good thing. My spot is Garda Lake in Italy, I'm 65kg and 1.80m tall..... thx

damn, Garda lake is great, went there in 1993 for the last time, windsurfing.

The carve has always been a great shape so no problems from that position. Of course, a futura is newer, modern, but on a carve you can have a lot of speed, jibing and fun!

shame you could'nt hold on for a futura,Iv'e had carves of various years since they came out,and just switched from a 122 carve to a 122 futura,the futura is by far faster,easier to gybe and very controlable in chop.(Thats probably why its faster).Nothing wrong with the carve but the futura is a diferent board,I was always concerned when I heard that sb were dropping the carve range,but can see why. However the carve 122 has the advantage of much earlier planning so you gains some you loose some. I think ,since I'veallways had carves,that if they had continued the marque I would have got another carve but pleased with my 2010 122 futura.Didn't like the price in uk though
