Something around 48 cm should be fine for a fin, but you may want to use a freerace sail instead of a pure race sail. You want constant power to push the heavy board though the water, not a slippery...

Get the 107. At your weight a 7 meter sail is the sweet spot for that board.

I have the 2013 Falcon 142. I also have 101 & 107 Isonics. Other than size, the Falcon doesn't sail any different than my Isonics. The Falcon planes very early, is fast and carries great speed...

For recreational sailing I think you would be ok with a 101 to 133 jump, but for slalom racing I think that is too large of a gap. The 101 will be slow to plane in 7.8 conditions compared to a 107...

1. Size sail is based on wind speed, fin size/type, water state, tides & rider skill. It does not have to be slalom but you will get the most out...

I have a couple of Talons. Very good slalom fins. Good speed, control and jibes. So, so up wind but that is not what I got them for. I recently purchased the T43 but in a larger size so I can't...

A smaller board will be easier to jibe if you can carry speed through the jibe or in rough terrain. Understand that with the Futura vs. your JP slalom you will get a more comfortable ride &...

How good is your water start? Is the water choppy or flat? Intermediate sailor in gusty winds you probably are going to need some extra float to uphaul. 121 or 131 would be my call if you don't...

Mark,
You are probably correct on the 101. I was thinking the same thing because I have a Futura 93 that I prefer for 6.0 & under conditions so I'm using my 101 for 6.5-7.6 range. If I get the 107...

Isonic 107 vs. 110

Which board would be better for a 75 kg sailor using 7.6 & 8.2 slalom sails? Both boards list the same sail range & roughly same fin range but there is a 6 cm difference in width. Is the 110...

If you go less than 70 than keep your 83. If you want a one board solution maybe consider 70-75 l board? Be great if you could demo or rent.

I'd say the 141. If your percentages were switched, 8.5 (20% & 6.5 (50%) then the 131.

What is your weight? Have you tried the 8.1 with the 42 cm fin? If you are real light the 42 should work.

I don't know about the Vandal but the NCX is a great sail. However, I don't think the 6.0 NCX would fit on your 460. What you need is a 6.5 freerace/freeride sail built for a 460 mast. Many 6.5...

The Naish All Terrain is more of a bump & jump sail. It will work, but not ideal as the Futura is more of a slalom board. The Naish Sprint or its predecessor the Naish Rally would be a better match...

At your level get the Futura. In addition to jibing it is far easier to tack the Futura than the Isonic.

A smaller sail will definitely help at your weight in the stronger winds no matter which board size you choose. I’m not saying don’t get the 93, just be honest with the wind you will be sailing in. ...
