Default Q for Remi - 2013 Futura 131

hi Remi,
was wondering if you could give your input about the new Futura 131 for 2013. Having owned the IS107 which is fantastic board, was considering a Futura 131 for light to medium wind blasting, mainly with 8.5 as the biggest sail.

Would like to know how this board rates in terms of early planing, speed, upwind and control. I could have easily got an IS117 instead, but found the board very short and not so fun in the jibes. My main objective is just fast freeride blasting, the board has to be early planing and good control in the chops, comfortable and fun to ride. I am not into slalom racing, so that's why considering the Futura. Advanced sailor @80kg weight.

cheers
