Default RE: Bigger rig and smaller board advice please...

Hi Nicki,
you can handle a 8.5 for sure. A 2 cam construction is no problem indeed. Just makes your sail a bit deeper in the bottom. Think about to combine a sail in this size with the right finlenght. 38 - 42 .

According the board. You are absolutely on the right way. Jibing will feel quite easy with a small baord and you will not believe how big your other models will feel after sailing on a small funboard.
I really would recommend you the KOMBAT from Starboard. The 87 liter one is a great size, 239 cm long, 59 cm wide and perfect for a trip to windy places (doesn??t matter if it??s flat, choppy or wavy). You will have fun with 4.5 and 5.0, but will not have any troubles using a 6.0 or a 4.0 .
The KOMBAT is an allrounder and makes fun in all kind of medium to high wind conditions.

Just come back to me if you should have further questions,

much success,
Kerstin
