Default RE: iS133 vs iS122

maybe I wasn't specific enough

my iS133 is my "light wind board" for 8-14kt
(combos: 40, 48 and 51 fins, 7.5, 8.7 and 9.5 sails)

If its gusting till 18kts I'll still be using it unless it doesn't go under ~14kts, from then on I'm definately using something more fit for blasting around and having CARE-FREE fun.

so

the 8-14 kts range works really well with the iS133 but I think I could get away with the iS122. <- This is all I&#39;m trying to verify
#################################

The tail (iS122) is wider than the C144 the widest part is a bit narrower. I used to be able to plane really early on my old C145 with a 9.0 and stock 52 fin.

I know the iSonics are slalom boards but in light winds (<=10 kts) you can put a larger fin on it (iS133) and off it goes (and quite fast in smaller gusts ~ 25kts in almost nothing, no white in sight 9.5/51)
