Joe,

I sailed the Hypersonic 105 + 10.6/11 m2 sail for 10 years before switching to iSonic 117W in 2012. Since 4 years, I'm very happy with this board and sails combo for light and medium wind, so...

Max,

It's not a good idea to put a small sail on a Formula board if you want to emphasize early planing as possible. Reason is that a wide Formula + long fin has quite a large drag that needs to...

Hi,
