I am hoping that you can help, I have a similar problem, I have recently started racing and have found that my free ride gear is not up to it. I have recently got 2xNP V8's, 7,5 & 6,5M. I currently have a 06 Carve 111, which I have been really happy with until now, but it is just not competative with the Falcons.
I have placed an order for an Isonic 101 and from the dimensions I am hoping that it will plane earlier than the Carve and also be a lot faster- as my firends are getting away from me in lighter winds (13 knots) - we only have 2 or 3 races below 15 knots - the rest are between 15 and 30 knots
Am I correct in assuming that the wider tail is going to make a much bigger difference when racing in lighter winds? Will I get planing earlier on the Isonic 101 than the Carve 111. the rest of the dimensions are very similar to the Carve?
Oh I weigh 75kg - is the 101 the right board?
Look forward to hearing your comments
