If you're75kg you'll have absolutely no problem slogging the IS111, I don't have any challenge with my 7.8m and I'm near 90kg. Slogging my heavy old 9m, the board is a bit wobbly and you need to be careful not to bury the nose, but still I wouldn't say it's a problem. The width and volume distribution of the new boards makes them a lot more slog friendly.
