Carve 141 planing
Hi Kevin,

I have the new Carve 141. I bought it in this year, but I dont see any informations about this board in this forum.
My favorite sail is 7.0 NP V6 with SideOn mast, with 75% carbon.
My weight 87 kg, and I am 188 cm. I am not too young, I am 52.
Which is the minimal wind speed to plan? I have a sail 7.9 NP Diabolo (2004), its good too, without any problem, but not the newest.

And I have Severne 5.0 Blade and 5.9 S1 too.
I am surfing in Hungary, an the lake Balaton.I am surfing since 1982, but I learned the old scool, and a changed my style..:)

I have sailed on your lake balaton before. It is a nice place. I think the minimum wind speed for the 141 and a 7.0 is around 12 knots.

Hope this helps.

Hi Kevin,

thank You for Your answer.
The Balaton is very nice lake, but the wind is not the best. Main time no wind or under 5 knots (summer cca. 70%), 15% 5- 12 kn, and 15% 15-20kn with 30-35 kn. blast or higher.

See You next time in Hungary!
