Default Max. Sail Size for Kode 94

Hi there

On your website you named a 6.5sqm sail as max. sail size for the Kode 94. I just wondered whether this board could also be used with a 6.9sqm (freestyle) sail. I mean it doesn't need to be perfect, but it should still be fun. (The board should be perfect with my 6.0 and 5.3.) I could imagine to replace the 6.9 by a 6.7, but I don't want to get smaller for my biggest sail - since we often have poor wind conditions on our lakes. I weigh 62kg (137lbs) and my second board is a wave board with 74 ltrs.

With my current 101 ltrs freewave board (which turned out to be a 104 ltrs board, width: 62.5cm / 24.6" ) I miss that feeling of a small board - especially in moderate wave conditions when the wind is not blowing enough for my small wave board. But on the other hand it's great to use it with the 6.9 - even in conditions when other sailors have to pull out ther 120 ltrs freeride board with 8.5 sail ;-).

Thanks for your help.

Andy
