Futura 133- smallest fin and biggest sail!?!?
Me and my friend are going to order the new Futura 133 WC this week. We have also ordered ncx pro 6.5 and a red line 430 mast.

I have 2 questions...:

1. What fin size and shape(in other words which fin) do you recommend for this combo?

2. I have from before a ncx 2009 model 8.0m2 with a 490 blue line mast as my biggest sail.

Is there much to gain in early planing from buying a bigger/other sail with this board? And what sail should I buy?

Or do I need a bigger board if I am to plane any earlier. I have decided on the 133 (in stead of the 141) because I want to use my 6.5 with this board... (Wise choice?)
I am considering the glide 8.5, the ncx pro 9.0 and the element 8.5 or 9.5.

I am going to order my new gear this week so I am really thankful for any answers!

My weight is 89 kg, mostly sailing in the inner Oslofjord where the light wind sometimes varies quite a bit, quite a few lulls and gusts between 4 m/s and 8 m/s. (8 m/s to much for the glide 8.5?)
