Which one planes earlier: C161-F155-IS144?

Hopefully somebody off the Starboard team will answer your question.

A few years ago my husband owned a Carve 161 which we didn't like because of it being too "easy". We preferred at the time the...

Which Isonic in replacement of FF-158/S-137 for early planing?

My husband (90 kg) has just sold his FreeFormula 158 from 2004 (100 cm wide) with his 11.0 m Sailworks Retro.
Reason: he didn't like to carry the really big sails and the formula feeling.

He also...

RE: Please help me with the choice of the right Kombat volumes!

Thank you Ola for your clear answer but I still have a question for my husband.

Please help me with the choice of the right Kombat volumes!

I have just sold my Evo 74 because I prefer the feeling of the Kombat 96 which I own already since 1,5 year.

RE: Which board between S-Type 126 & K-96?

@Floyd:
Thanks for your reply.
I agree with you that from a "normal point of view" 5 litres reserve is not enough.
BUT on the other hand I have recently read an article about (euro)wave boards in...

Hi Alena

You are right, I think it's in the first place a matter of learning to adapt my style/stand to smaller boards that are moreover wave oriented.

Moreover, you...

Hi Roger,

My husband has got a FF-158 (not the F-Type 148) which is 1 m wide.

RE: iS145 vs. FT148

Hi Roger

My husband weighs 88 kg.
It's rather the Retro 11.0m? that is "feeling big" too soon.
He has sailed my FF-138 which is wider than the IS-145 though: 96 cm x 222 cm.

Maybe he should...
