This question, and your reply is really interesting to me because I am considering the same boards for use with a 7.5 . The difference is though, I am only 66 kg, so I have been wondering about the relationship between rider weight - sail size - and board volume ?
Are the recommended sail sizes for boards based on an average sized rider ?
For instance, would a 7.5 be closer to the sweetspot on the F101 if it was being ridden by a 66 kg sailor rather than 80 kg ?
