in front of Circolo Surf and along the Torbole Beach the wind is at least one Bft less than it is at the Ponale (the favourite spot to go when you stay at Torbole). But even on a good (!!) day at the Ponale the ORA is in the range of approx. 16 to 18 knots. Of course there are Big Days when the ORA blows with 30 knots, but this doesn't happen very often (maybe twice in a month).
So in my opinion for an 80 kg surfer competing in a slalom race at the Lake of Garda the combo iSonic122 + 9qm sail + 7.8 qm sail should be fine. I wouldn't recommend an iSonic 111 as an only board.
