Hi Jean-Marc, yes the date seems correct but I can't see my posts.
I've got this strange message twice when trying to add links to NCX test pages.

French forum governance

New rule on the French forum: all posts to be reviewed by moderators before going online?

Salut Fred, si tu ne fais pas de compète, de longue distance ou de vitesse, des voiles no-cam comme les NCX seront très bien pour 20/30 Nds. Par contre tu risques de te servir surtout de 6 m² (voire...

Salut Fred, je trouve aussi ces indications assez fantaisistes. La F-111 fait 69 cm de large et 6 m² voire 6,5 semble un grand minimum. Volume = poids + 30 s'applique bien à une planche unique pour...

Many booms have marks locating the "center of effort" which is somewhat conflicting with the fact that you can extend them by 50cm. These are useful to adjust the lines equally on both sides. However...

Salut Laurent,

A priori ton quiver correspond bien à tes conditions de navigation "tout ou rien" et c'est plutôt une question de technique. Peut-être la NewWave est trop typée vague pour ce que tu...

May also depend on conditions. In strong wind (or overpowered) you may like more back hand pull as it is safer. In light or unsteady wind you want to stay sheeted-in all the time, then lines beyond...

You should... when it gets really hot you feel there's plenty of volume for people of our weight, but surprisingly the low rocker, thin rails and relatively narrow tail make it quite enjoyable....

Hi Eric,

The ST126 was my lightwind board for three years. The biggest sail I had on it was a 7.3 (I'm 68 Kg). I thing it can handle 8-8.2 very well but it has a quite narrow tail (~43 OFO) and...

Agree with the above. At 68Kg I can set 7.8m² w/o problem on my 65cm/103L freeride board while it will become scary with anything less than 5.5 (recommended range: 4.5-7.5). I never tried bigger...

Moisture shall be lighter than air to some extend, because clouds are in the sky water must go up there.
I'd bet cold air - either moist or dry - will be always heavier due to condensation (vapor...

Hi Klem, you will have trouble going upwind at the beginning for sure. But as you are learning fast it should be OK in a matter of days. Make sure you have enough power in the sail to get some drive...

Air density decreases with temperature. For a given windspeed you need smaller sails in winter. From 35 to 5°C it goes from 1,14 to 1.27 so you get an equivalent "push" with a 7.7 sail (roughly).

See http://www.star-board.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10389 "the 35cm is 43cm long".
That should be OK for your combo. 32 may probably work with 7.3 on a narrower board.

Have not sailed the Futura 131 but 32cm seem quite small for such a wide board, even with 30° rake.

Was about to tell you the same. The Carve would be an ideal multi-purpose one-board solution for you with 5.0-7.5 sails, reminescent of the S-Type. But if you have also a 90L Freevawe, then the...

Considering your program I would go for the Carve... but I'm 10 Kg lighter. The Futura may give you that precious bit of extra range you need to save many light wind days.

Sailing at l'Almanarre today I noticed a few things. In average, kiters were not younger than windsurfers. There were many young windsurfers indeed, and some greyish kiters as well....

Fin planted the board will offer less lift with rear upwind. Otherwise it's the reverse, nose upwind is better.
