search for an all wave board
Hello Kevin,

First, congratulations for all you did in windsurf, and i wish you all the best for the next year(s)!
Here is my "problem": I'm a light weight sailor (68 kgs, sorry, I'm french, I don't know how many pounds), and I'm looking for a great wave board that could be fun when it's flat. The sails I'll use on it are 5.2 and 4.5. When the wind is not enough for 5.2, I use a 6 (remedy, great sail) with a JP 105l.

In my shop, they told me to choose the evil twin 80...In my mind, the Kode 80 would be better. For the moment, I use a tiga wave 78l, and I find it a little bit too small and not enough speed...
May I have your (pro) help, please?

Thanks for your reply, Johann

Sorry for the delay in response. I would definitely go with the Kode due to the fact that you will use it in the flatter times. I think they Kode has the speed you are looking for and the maneuverability. I think you will enjoy this board!

OK, nice to have your opinion. In the french forum, they told me the same thing... Now, let's go to my store.

Just another question: if you had just 2 sails to go with this board (kode 80), what would you suggest? I just think that there is one ideal sail, but I can't buy 2 others (0.5 sqm more and less than this ideal sail)
I hope that you are "on fire" for Ponta preta, have fun and thanks a lot for your reply!

I would say to go with 5.3 and 4.7 as the perfect sizes for this board.

Yeah, good job Kevin! 3rd on a Kode 80!
What else?
