Screamer 3.7 to 6.3 - that's a really big sail range, simply there aren't any boards that will cover that comfortably. I'm 86kg, sail on a river, and use a kombat86 (kode predecessor). For our weight and this volume (on a lake), you need pretty strong winds. Go for the 94, good pair with your 125, just forget 3.7 for now.

Chris Pressler Would say around 6,0 m.

so what is the max sail for the kode 86?

Chris Pressler Hi Kode,
if you will use 6,3 more often than 4,6 I would suggest the 94 as well. If you use the 6,3 not often on the small board, and a 6,3 definitely needs volume - the 103 would be better - I would suggest the 86. The 86 works great with sails from 4,2 to 5,3 and you could use a 3,7.
Out of my view the 86 covers more sizes out of your sailrange. But if you will use the 5,3 most of the days, the 94 is definitely a good choice and the gap towards the 126 would not be too big.

Hope it helps,

John1 87 kg, Code 86 and 6,3 sail, I dont think it will work with the 6,3 sail. Go for the 94 board.

Kode 86or 94

I am 87 kg and need a small board beneath my 126l.
Level: intermediate-advanced. I need a good convertible board that works on lakes (chop) as well as in small waves (1-3m).
Sails: 3.7 (seldom) 4.6(sometimes) / 5.3 / 6.3 (sometimes).
What would you recommend? Does the 86 plan significantly later than the 94 or is it similar? May I use a bigger fin for earlier planning and the 6.2 sail with the 86l?
How do 86 and 94 compare? What would you recommend?

Thank you!
