Thanks for this answer. Wood will be better in this case. Carbon looks nice, but is very expensive. What bothers me more is the gain in weight from 7.8 kg last years wood to 9 kg this year. I know this has to do with an other way of building the board, but doesn't it pay a significant price in planining capacity and feeling under foot?
Besides this the local shop offered a futura 133 '11 carbon for a very good price. I know these boards, because I have the 93 and 111. But how well is the futura 133 for recreational use for a 65 kg person which already surfs in footstraps and trapeze.
In other words how much is the difference between the futura 133 and carve 131? May the 133 be an alternative?
