personally i think that is a "misconception" and hope StarBoard will confirm
i have an old FreeFormula that is supposed to handle 8.5 to 12m sails
my largest sail is a 10m sail that goes really well with this board.
when i try my 8.4 on this board, i find it is too much board for the sail
prefer a larger freeride or slalom board with such a sail
would guess the "true" range of the SB US is 9-oh to 12m
with around 10 as the ideal !!!
8.5 perhaps - but NOT 7.5 !!!
sailor weight dependent of course...
