I would say just under iSonic performance and in rough chop that could be debatable.

But for your size for 5-6 bft I would go as small as possible. You are light enough to go through lulls so as much as I love the Futura I think the JP would be best for you.
Yeah, the JP is 3cm thinner which will probably make it feel like a smaller board in high wind compared to the Futura. I guess the difference in volume is pretty much irrelevant. My current board is 64cm wide so I think the difference would definitely be felt whilst riding this smaller board in high wind.
