Dont get me wrong, this combo handles the conditions very well. This is a place where I usually use a wave board for B&J, so even in 10 to 15 knots it is very lumpy, in fact I have found that the i122 jumps very well ; ) But if you are'nt concerned with speed, then a Futura would be better. My boards are i86, i122 and Acid86, I dont want to get a bigger wave board, so at the mo my i122 and 8.4 RSS is my 8 to 15 knts combo for any water state. I weigh 75 to 80 kgs, I usually have the 8.4 fully downhauled and I have my mast track in the centre, foot straps are in the recommended positions. I also dont sail this combo very often, maybe once every few months, so I guess my muscles never really get conditioned to the stances and positions that I sail in
