I understand your concerns but they would soon fade if you were to try a 110 as it feels more like a 125L board underfoot. If you are learning to water start up hauling will be easy for you on this...

Hi, the Atom 120 will be a good board for you to progress on but be wary that you will soon find it too big and you will be wanting something smaller like a 110. I'm 90kg and find the 110 feels just...

Here is an update on fins that work well on the Atom 110 (possibly other Atoms too). After finding the standard 38cm Drake fin a bit soft/small for use with my 6.5 especially in more marginal...

I had to wait four months for my US147 when I was told it would be 3. Now I wait for the importer to have the board in stock before I order from my local dealer.

Hi Olivier, I am 5 kilos lighter than you and own the carbon Freewave 86 and that does everything you describe as wanting from a smaller board. I'm sure the wood version would be a softer in the chop...

Hi Flemming, great to hear that you are pleased that the fin works well for you and not surprised that it offers a better top speed due to its shorter more swept back nature but I doubt very much if...

Hi, here are my thoughts, if you want to be planning in 16 knots of wind at your weight the 7.8 will work well as your biggest sail. Also you need to look at the jump to the 5.3 so I would suggest a...

Yes a good price but I think you'll enjoy the NCX or Turbo more due to easier handling and rigging.

After owning a 110 for the past year I have played around with various sail sizes, foot strap positions and fin combos. At 90kg the biggest sail I used on this board was a 7.8 and that felt pretty...

If you had of asked for advice before buying the board then some may have suggested you buy an 8.6 or 9m sail to use on your 131 and a bigger fin. This way you could work on your technique which will...

Unregistered, you are right that he could have gone bigger with the sail sizing on his 131 to get planning earlier but I disagree that you only need a formula board to plane in less than 10 knots.

So do you think there will be an interchangable foil that slips in and out like a fin depending on wind strength? Will the board have two or three foils? Will it be a dedicated board (obviously if it...

The 8.6 will be slower as you are using it in less wind also the fin is bigger than what you would use with a 7.8 so therefore creates more drag.

Personally I would go with the NCX as it matches the characteristics of you board better, the Gator would be a better match to say a Firemove.

In answer to your question the NCX would offer more...

Hi, yes I am or that is the plan anyway, I have only used the 7 & 7.8 on the is110 so far, the reason that I chose the 110 is to overlap with the US147 with the 8.6. Think the 7.8 is the sweet spot...

Hi, I have used the US with an 11m and a Drake 62cm fin but found it a little too powerful, you may only need a 60cm in certain makes.
