Replace fut08 133W for early planing

I want to replace my fut08 133w for better 'passive' early planing capacity.
I'm 72 kg and biggest sail is V8 9.0.
I want max early planing capacity on flat water.
Also have a Fut 122W for more wind.

Need look for 141 WC ?

thanks for advice ?

Hi Luc,

If you are looking for very early planning, the Futura 141 W/C can help but very close to the 133, so better at this time to switch to an iSonic 131 W/C. Big difference between your actual Futura 133 and you can keep your 122.
iSonic 131 with 9m˛ is absolute perfect size.

Hope this help

All the best

additional question to Remy
Hi Remy,

I always tought the Isonic would require more technique to get planing and to sail ?
What is then the difference in early planing beween fut 141 and the Isonic.
I'm looking for an easy going machine.

Tx for the above reply

Hi Luc,

If you use a V8 9m˛ already so you must have enough level for the iSonic 131, by the way the board is not so more difficult to Futura. The difference will be in jibe who is more technical and in non planning the board will be sink a bit due to short nose.
If this is a problem for you at this time the combination of the Futura 122 & 144 is the way to go.

All the best

TX Rémy
I'll try to test the Isonic before deciding.
Anyway i'll stick to Starboard

TX for the help Rémy.
