quiver: 2 board, 4 sails I forgot!

in torbole i suppose you'll be working with the afternoon winds whoch are 4-5 bft, occasionally a light 6. If they make you go out early in the morning you might have the morning winds which are like 6-7 occasionally 8 bft. So for a slalom quiver, under the assumption the max limit is 9.0 i'd go for: 5.5 - 6.5 - 7.8 - 9.0 with the Isonics 122 and 86 (with your weight that should do... with mine i'd need bigger boards ;))

maybe the good slalomsurfer know better

hope this helps

Realy useful answer, thanks Crazychemical:)
I don'y know if there are races in the morning wind, it's realy early!!
I thought something like: 5,3 6,7 7,8 and 8,5 or 9,4, with 122 and 94 liters
Is it right?

is there a maximum sailsize? if there is, take it with you, sometimes the winds don't come through well enough. The 5.3, if you're not sailing mornings ... forget it, you won't use it. The afternoon winds are 4-6 on their best so if you're slalomming: think big. The boards are good, they should fit your needs.

Max 10m
I can bring 9,4m but (my 8,5m is very powerful)
No races in the morning...except if ... so 6,7m as smallest size is a risk
