i want to pick up a new board this year, but am looking for advice on what would be the best option(s) for the conditions in mn. we generally see about 10 knots on the lakes, and i would just like to have a board that would get me planing relatively early. i've been looking heavily into the formula, but have read that it's too much to handle in anything more than 15 kts wind? iv'e also considered the phantom race, but it's sheer size makes me nervous about even getting it to the lakes. does transporting such a big board payoff once you get it on the water?
thanks for any input
