man , the board must be tiny tooooo

good luck !!!
That calculator is completely ridiculous, it says I should be taking sails some times almost 1m less than I do take out.

I would go for a cross over sail, like a NP Firefly 4.1m or 4.5m. Will probably be better for racing than a full on wave sail.

That being said I have a HSM Smack in 5.3 for medium to high wind and it's great to have a bullet proof sail as you can go out stressfree.
