Remi Hi Unregistered,

In your case I will recommend you the 131 who will be nice with your 3 sails, the 141 is really to big for nice riding with 6.2.

All the best

COACHG I'd say the 141. If your percentages were switched, 8.5 (20% & 6.5 (50%) then the 131.

Unregistered am a heavyweight , butt not accustomed to Futura boards
my windsurf buddy is 6'4" and about 240 pounds
he started with a BIC Techno 160 and used an 8.5 most of the time in our light wind area
sometimes used a 7-oh and on occasion a 6-oh
he purchased a Fanatic Hawk 135 and sold the Techno
at first h regretted selling the bigger more floaty board, but he is sticking with it
what he learned is the smaller less floaty board did not schlog as well and one needs another technique to uphaul if the winds are not strong enough for beach n water starts
his wind minimums also went up even though he did not change his sails - due to schlogging and uphaul issues
if you have steady winds over about 14 to 16 knots i would guess the 131 would be the ticket
if there are many holes in the wind or you go out lighter i would guess the 141
the 141 is supposed to be able to handle a 10-oh as well
i am 6'1" and 95 kilos and a 10-oh will plane for me in about 12 knots
hope this gives you some ideas .... and that others with Futura experience chime in

good luck

Futura 131 vs 141

I'm 95 Kg, (210 lbs). I can plane and waterstart, learning footstraps.
I need a Futura as my light to medium wind board.
I'm aiming to use an 8.5 50% of the time, and a 7.5 30% of the time
6.5 20%.
I'm gonna windsurf in the Adriatic/ Mediterranean sea.

Which futura would you recommend, the 131 or 141? or perhaps something else?
