|Unregistered||Thanks for your useful comment CoachG , i tried futura 131 few weeks ago but in a much windier spot and the wind was much stable than my usual surfing spot and i found it very comfortable while riding meanwhile i dont know if it will plane like slalom does in gusty spot of ours ..but while the footstraps are in a much more comfortable position it may be easier on futura to get going than slalom|

A smaller board will be easier to jibe if you can carry speed through the jibe or in rough terrain. Understand that with the Futura vs. your JP slalom you will get a more comfortable ride & easier/better jibe but you will lose planing power if going with 111/121/131 Futura vs. your current 132. So if you can't plane all the time with the JP 132 than your planing time will go down with 111/121/131 Futura.

They are a very user friendly board and it will be ok for gybing but as a novice gyber maybe something like the new AtomIQ would be better?
7.0m sail will also work well on the Futura 121

What other size sails do you plan on using with this board?
Going on what you have written so far the 121 sounds perfect

How good is your water start? Is the water choppy or flat? Intermediate sailor in gusty winds you probably are going to need some extra float to uphaul. 121 or 131 would be my call if you don't have a solid water start.

Which Futura size ?
I am an intermediate windsurfer weighing 90 kg s , i am planing in footstraps but not gybing yet ( working on it ) ,i am using a Jp slalom 132 lt s for now but want to switch to a freeride , most probably a Futura. Which size do you offer for me ? Btw wind is much gusty in my spot and i use a 7.8 two cam sail .
