Default Starboard Futura 93l

Hi all,

I'm new here, so I want to introduce myself and ask for experiances.
I'm a 33 years old windsurfer from Germany (70-76 kg - it depends; perhaps due to the age ;-) ) and I like windsurfing in Gruissan (South of France - next week, the DEFI Wind starts with over 1000 surfers). Last summer, I was out with my red Fanatic Bee 84, the wind blows, but at the beach area, the wind decreased due to a few mountains, so it was not easy to curve with high speed. I saw other surfers with a Starboard (Futura 93l, 101l) and I felt like a beginner. So I decided to buy also such a board and yesterday I found the 2009 model Technora in red and the price was below 1000 Euros, so I've bought it (this board was totaly new, not used). I hope that I will have a lot of fun with it. I think that 93l will be enough for my weight and a wind between 5 and 7 Beaufort with the correct sail. Last year, I've tested the Futura 122l, but this was too big for me. I think with the correct sail and the fin, this is a good deal. Have you experiences with these board?

Thanks for your comments in advance.
