Which second board for an F-Type 138 owner?
last year I convinced a friend of mine to buy an F-Type 138. He is very happy with this board which he primarily uses with his NP RS6 7.2/8.5 race sails. He now wants to buy a second board to make life a bit easier in stronger winds (lets say above 16 knots).
This board should be sailable with the NP RS6 7.2 as well as with a 6qm Free Ride sail. His weight is approx. 75 kg. He has good experience in windsurfing but gibes are a weak point (will improve this but tacks should be no problem on the new board). Uphauling the sail is a must at his favorite spot (Lake of Garda in Italy), so sufficient volume is required (no wet knees, please).
I have thought of a Carve 111 or a SType 115 but the real volume of the SType 115 is just 108 litres (??).
Unfortunately he doesn't like the iSonics although that board (which one) might be the best solution???
