Isonic 111 or 122
 
Hi Kevin and congratulations for your results as well as for the nice web page that you have (very nice pics by the way).
I am 1.70 , 82Kg (experienced but not pro) and where I windsurf the wind during the year blows from 7 to 24 knots (a bit gusty) with an average of 15knots and the water is quite flat without too much chops. I already have F159 and an old Sputnik 275 (99lt), which is out of date, and I want to buy a slalom board that will fill the gap, or even replace the old Sputnik board, since I have problems with it when the wind falls a bit (especially uphaul). Keep in mind that I have a 9.0 and a 6.7 race sails and I intend on buying a 7.7 in order to use with medium wind.
I would like your opinion about which isonic between the i111 and the i122 is better for me (considering my weight as well) in order to make good use of my sails and plane for most of the time in typical 10 -19 knots without worrying if the wind falls at 8knots for example if I float or not.
Thanks in advance, best regards.

Glad you like my blog.. I would use the 122 from 9.0 to my 7.6 and from the sounds of it this will work the best for you as well. The 122 is a very sweet board and it is probably one of my favorites!

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot Kevin I was also leaning towards 122 but wasn't sure if it is big, but with your advice I think I'm pretty much sure about the size. It's nice to be able to have an advice from expert pro's that even though they have a very busy schedule they always find time to answer to everyone's queries.
Keep up the good job and best of luck in your results.
