Sad to hear, could probably happen with any board if you are unlucky. But I do agree that the iSonic 122 requires more from the rider when it comes to getting into the straps. Futura is then a better option as poster above me suggested. I have the iS 122 and it's a sweet board. But sailed the Futura 111 and 122 rentals for a month in the carribean, awsome boards too! The futura 122 with a well tuned 7,5 freerace sail is a nice balanced combo.
