i agree with taylor doo doo,
i tried the futura in maui at kanaha beach on a marginal day, with the biggest sail Kanaha kai had for rental a 6.0 something, hot sails fire i think.
It turned like crap when i went on a wave , and by crap i mean in comparison to the series of kodes and quads the week before, in waves in 4.2 conditions.
yup when i tried that futura in comparison on a wave doing a cutback yeah turned like crap.
but it was a heck of alot faster, and gybed nice around some marks the race guys put out , racing custom boards and neil pryde race sails, i mean I almost kept up! but they were running 7.0 at least.
