101 or 111
great to see Starboard has the biggest slalom range on the market but it it get me crazy for the right choice!!
I'm around 82 kg , expert sailor , regional racer .
I need a beast to fight vs a couple of Sx M ..... We use to sail slalom when pretty windy so the 101 would be the choice . It can easily works if we consider only training days BUT when it comes racing situations something changes.
Wind can shift , increase or decrease while you're going to start ( !! ) , figure 8 (most of the time) or pure downwind slalom , crowd close to the starting line , replacement need to attack or defence your position . Slalom is all about ....
The best thing would be having all the range ready to make used or (much more common and cheaper!) having a very good allround board that doesn't give you problem before and during races (like every isonic model seems to be) .
So now,in a given sails range,should i go smaller or bigger ?
P.S. is it true that 101 is too low in the water while 111 is freer ?
