Also, I remain a bit unsure about the type and volume. Can you please share your opinion?

- I've chosen Futura, because at the moment, I'm mostly into freeriding and this board felt the best. Furthermore, I believe it will also allow me to do some basic freestyle/wave surfing in bump and jump conditions or a light swell. (which you typically have in the North Sea)

- As for the volume, I was thinking of either 111 or 122. I'm a 67 kg sailer, 1.85m. I would like to be able to get some airtime, attain high speeds and enjoy early planing. In aruba, I mainly sailed the 133, which was fine for the moment, but felt a bit too large for the future.

FYI: I will match the sail with a Neil Pryde Expression 5.7 or 6.2.


Many thanks,

Moebius

steveC You might try contacting Trident Sports, as they are the distributor for North America. I did that earlier and they got me hooked up with a good retailer. If I were you, I'd request a handful of retailers to coordinate with so that you might leverage the best deal overall. Sometimes a retailer closer that might cost a little more can save you costly freight charges.

Moebius I've contacted windsurfdirect for the Futura board and am waiting for the reply. Since I was also looking for some sails (more precisely, NP Expression 4.7 and 5.7), I wondered whether there are any other sites. I've already heard of silent sport.
