It doesn’t sound like you are going to be slalom racing, but free sailing. Both the 97 & 107 Isonic’s will be fine with the 6.4, it is just that the 97 will take the 6.4 into higher wind.

I could see the combination you are asking about working for 7-30 knots. But that 31-40 knot range is probably going to be too big for your weight. Even small lakes can get big chop in that kind...

The guy isn't recommending a 110 liter 8.6 sail combo, he is recommending the OP get a 110 liter & 86 liter board for 8-13 knts winds.

16 knts is a rough estimate for a 90 kg sailor using a 7.8 sail. The better your technique or the lighter your weight the less wind you will need to plane. The higher your weight or lack of...

Even though it is 86 liters, the Kode is almost 60 cm wide. He did say up & down, real world conditions. I don't see him being able to uphaul the board at his weight so it sounds like he...
