Remi Hi Unregistered,

Yes you will have better results with the 8.6 on the iSonic 117 Wide at your weight. We built this board specially for you

Enjoy it

All the best

Isonic 117 wide

hi remy ,

As you said < isonic 117 wide = 8.6metre , a combination for sailor 75kgs and below. cause i am risding isonic 121 and 8 metre wrap now . thought of upgrading my gear to 127 isonic and 8.6 metre for light wind

but after reading your recommendations to other sailor > u think 117 wide (80.5cm) with 8.6 metre is good for me> (just checking with the master)

many thanks

Remi Hi David,

Any way these can help for different body weight for the PWA format :

Extreme light (under 60kgs) : 80, 97 & 107
Light (60-75kgs): 80, 97 & 117 Wide
Medium (75-85kgs) : 80, 107 & 117 Wide
Heavy (85-95kgs): 87, 107 & 127
Very heavy (Over 95kgs): 94, 117 & 137

Of course this is not lock and every bodies can adapt on their home condition & their style

On top of this your sails size are important for your choice but also the boards number 1, 2 or 3.

All the best

Remi, this might be overkill, but can you indicate a range in Kg/lbs for "extreme-light", "light" etc... Maybe it makes no much difference but I am really not so sure what a medium weight is, nor where my 70Kg fits in the list
thank you

Remi Hi Shinobi,

Thanks, great that you love it in medium winds, impatient to have your comments with 8.5

We make it low volume particularly in the nose to get more control.

All the best

shinobi Hey Remi,

you said the 117 wide is a board for light winds, but it does more then only light wind!
Today we had rather strong thermal wind and lazy as I am, the 97 is still not setp with straps... So I took the 117 wide with a 7.5 and the R16 in 44cm. WHAT A COMBO!
Very secure feeling and no a bit of control problems. To be honest, I was pretty sceptical about the middle wind performance considering the 80cm. However, the tail is fairly slim and goes max speed even in choppy waters.
A friend was on the 121 also with 7.5 and we were at pair for the downwind speed but I could run better high with more speed. Later I changed to a 42cm Hurricane SS fin and the downwind speed was much better and the board felt pretty damn compact.
So what is the downturn of the 117 wide? Well for me: I do need a bigger car as the I can't put 2 board next to the 117 wide. But that is all.
Next time I hope to get some time with the 8.5 sail to check out the light wind performance.

So far I'm just happy with the 117 wide. Nice work Starboard team!

Remi Hi Cholo,

Most of the women in PWA are under 60 kgs but also a very important factor is that a man have much more power at the same weight as a women.

Any way these can help for different body weight for the PWA format :

Extreme light : 80, 97 & 107
Light : 80, 97 & 117 Wide
Medium : 80, 107 & 117 Wide
Heavy : 87, 107 & 127
Very heavy : 94, 117 & 137

Of course this is not lock and every bodies can adapt on their home condition & their style

All the best

Remi Hi Shinobi,

Congratulation for your board and wait for your feed back.

Yes it's a Mistake and correct in production already, so you have a collector

All the best

shinobi Misson accomplished! I got my 117 wide today.
The board looks awsome and is damn light! The cutouts seem to be more far into the board, compared to the 121 of 2010, at least compared to the fin box.
Anyway, tomorrows prediction is looking good and I'm looking forward for a first session. So far I've mounted the rear straps in the very rear position and the front straps in the middle. That should also suit the rather small footpads.

Anyways, one little hint to the starboard team: You shouldn't write 75cm on the board. I checked it and the width is 80cm, maybe a writting mistake ;-)

Enjoy slalom!
