so a 8.5 or 9.5 would be quite a handful for me.
I'm also 120lbs and I'm looking to put together a really light wind setup to maximize my windrange. I already own a 7.5m, so it's good to know that this can get you going in just 8 knots! This range, 8-14knts, would be ideal for me as I generally take my 5.8m and current board out as of 14 knots.
