Which 360? Upwind or down? For upwind in the strap 360 the straps have to be inside enough so you can get your front foot over the center line while still in the strap. For downwind 360 it doesn't...

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...

Not every sailing site is the same. Your bad experience because of a lack of wind or technique should have no bearing on someone unless they sail at your location with your ability. I agree that...

Roger,
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...

At your weight the board will schlog fine. It will be a bit of a dog to plane in gusty 5.8 conditions compared to a 95-110 liter board but once up & going you will be happy.

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.

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...

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...

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...

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.
