Hi Jan
The extra length of the Futura will make it easier to tack, feeling more like a normal length freeride board.

Don't be put off by the shorter noses. There are many ways to fast tack very short slalom boards, each one personal to the rider. After a few sessions, you will definetly find out what works for you.

The new style of fast tacking was a must for the Hypersonic, and has been refined since. Once mastered, you will be tacking in any water and wind state
