Happy New Year all.
I weight 73 kg and my height is 1,70. I have been riding a freeride board 145lt (2.55m long 79cm wide). My current sails are a loft O2 5,9 , a loft wave 5,1 and Naish sprint 6,6.
Sailing conditions are flat/choppy water and sometimes small waves depending on the wind strength.
Wind speed where I sail is usualy 12 - 20 knotts and some times goes up to 26.
Regarding my level. I can waterstart 8 out of 10 times when wind blows from my left side and just 1 out of 10 when it blows from the right
(as if my left foot is too weak to be the first to climb on board in order to water start
I plane easily with harness and just getting in the front foorstrap. I jybe in low speed 5 out of 10.
I was thinking of getting a smaller board as a second one - which will later become my "big" board.
My questions are :
1. What size should I be looking at ? around 95-110 lt with a width of 63-67 ?
2. Should I be looking for a FSW board which will plane easily, handle chop and small waves and be rather friendly for jybes ? sort of an all around board ...
Thanks in advance for all advise and help !
