Default RE: F-type 158 + Gaastra GTX 10.5, planning?

--

Hi Guest,

in my opinion and referring to other guys with F-Type 158, with a good 10.5 cambered sail like GTX, at least 62-64 cm fin and with a weight of 70 kg, I think your Lightwind limits should be at 9-10 knots, about 4.5-5 m/s, steady wind.

No, for planing in Lightwind a formula board is not strictly required but a board like F-Type 158 (231 lenght x 100 width) is more than adeguate (if combined with appropriate sail and fin)
