Hi Remi

Im an intermediate windsurfer, planning in footstraps, harness, waterstart, working on gybes now.

Im 78kg and sail in flat and choppy waters.
I have a 5.0m and 6.0m sails without cambers and a 7.0m and 8.0m sails with cambers.

I have a Futura 101 L to sail with 5.0 and 6.0 and a Fanatic Shark 130 L to sail with 7.0 and 8.0 sails. I love so much the Futura for the speed and ease of use!!!

My Shark is 258cm long and 70cm wide and i use it with two fins: 46cm and 36cm

I want to buy a Futura to replace my Shark but i cant decide between the 122 L or 133 L.

Im afraid that the Futura 133 L being 76,5cm width will be to large to sail with 7.0m well powered up and that the 122 L being only 245cm long will be to short to uphaul a 8.0m camber sail when the wind goes done...

Can you give me your opinion?

Thanks a lot

Hi Mario,

Please read this : http://www.star-board.com/2010/news_events/read.php?threadid=8010

So you can use the 122 & 133, but if you want more stability, you can go for the 133.

All the best

Hi Remi

Ive seen this link and read it before but im still confused.

In your opinion and regarding i have a Futura 100 L do you think that a 122 L will be to close or a 133 L will be to distante from the 100 L?

Thanks for the quick reply.

Hi Mario,

The step between the Futura 101 and 122 is enough, but if you need more volume for your balance or your spot specification, go for the 133.

All the best
