I prefer 9.5 with 127 or 8.6 with 117 instead of 8.6 and 127 but the former option requires two boards the latter requires one board. Theoretically one could have 127, 117 and 110 to be perfectly covered for light and medium wind but then there would be nothing left for the high winds if your limit is 3 boards.
Considering to move down from 127 to 110 opens the door for a smaller size such as 97 which would easily cover the 20-30 knot range.
Do you have any thougths or suggestions??
