Chooosing board help
I have been a windsurfing athlete in techno 293 for 5-6 years and now I would like to buy my first "fun" board. I can water-start, jibe, jump and the rest. I am about 82 kg (164 lbs) and i will be sailing in a wide wind range (16-30 knts) with chop up to 80 cm in normal conditions. However there might be some days (not very often) with waves up to 3 meters. I have windsurfed quite a lot with a diversity of boards, including a kode 113 lt and a futura 122 lt. I understand that you can't have it all with one board but I'm looking for a fast board that could take some jumps. I am very interested in the Kode and the Futura, with volume about 90-120 lt. What would you suggest? Also, should I buy a sail with or without cambers? Would a 6.5-7.5 sail with a 42 cm fin work fine for me?

Thank you.

Hi Windsurfjim,

So you have good experience of racing so you now what is going in the red zone.

You can choose of course differnet board for your programm. If you choose the fast way go for a Futura 111 with a 7.5 Ncx and will be ok for 80 cl chop. If you choose the "waves" option the Kode 103 can be the option with 6.5

Hope this help.

All the best and welcome on this forum
