Default RE: iSonic105 technical ride

Hi Ricky,

You mean iS145 vs iS133 (as above) or iS145 vs HS133?

For iS145 vs iS133 the answer is yes, about 2 kts at the critical marginal planing wind/s for these boards.

For iS145 vs HS133 the answer is half yes, about 1-2 kts at the critical marginal planing wind/s for these boards if not super efficent HS technique used.For riders that have really good HS early planing ability, they narrow down the gap a bit.

Remember too, with HS vs iS early planing comparison, you also need to consider the overall board+fin combo : with iS145 it's more big fins (52-56cm), whereas with HS133 it's more often 44-48cm.
