Ok, from that i understand that the Futura is more of racing/blasting, as the Kombat/Hawk is more of a freemove/B&J board... still, how would the Futura handle some long jumps when blasting over the wave crests...? I'm trying to find the similarities of the "old" S-types which obviously were okay jumpers (or am I wrong?).
Still the F101 (65 cm wide) maybe could give me some extra benefits while finetuning my gybes, compaer to my Kobat(61,5cm)?
