I guess because your 46 is way way to big. Too much back hand and back foot pressure making you do defensive stance. 42 to 40 good all round size depending on fin brand.

I use a 46 on a is137 with...

Hi Asle

Quite a few iS87's have been used at my local for speed. General opinion on fin choice for the iS87 is that high wind slalom fins are faster than wide base speed fins. Something along the...

2011 iS107 vs 2014 iS107

i still use my 2011 iS107 wood. My local windsurf shop hell me out with my boards and sails, they have offered me a great close out deal on an iS107 wood 2014.

How does the 2014 feel compared to...

I'm about get a 2014 iS107. I think ups an ex rental board and it also has a nose protector, I'm guessing it's factory fitted too. Are they fairly easy to take off?

Hi DD

If 7.3m and 8.4m are your most used sails, I reckon it's worth getting the best board for those regular conditions.

The iS107 would be really good for you, but to be truthful, because of...

I don't think Dutch dude is looking at changing his is127, he is looking for a smaller board for 6.3 and 7.3 (and maybe 8.4).

You can force stretch the range of a board to much!

I'm surprised that the f hot fin vibrates. I have six f hot fins for my iS107 and iS137 and none of them vibrate or whistle. Do your fins fit tightly in the fin box?

Hi David,

I think your making the correct choice with the iS90. At 78kg, the iS90 and 7m should be ok in 15/16 knots.

But the good thing will be that the iS90 will be much more controllable in...

Both will be a decent change down from your iS101. The iS86 will not be too close to your iS101.

The iS76 has a lot of rocker in the nose c/w the iS86 and would be slightly easier than the iS86 in...

Luckily the remainder of the PWA tour is at windy locations, so board size should not be an issue.

But personally, I still think the limit could do with being raised to 90cm for the heavy weights....

Hi Chris, thanks for the reply. Sean obrian said a similar thing to you. So I guess most don't need to go bigger. I think Sean is around 80kg, so his iS117/8.6m is enough in light winds.
