Default RE: iSonic105 technical ride

I'm at 65kg and have the iS105. I love this board when the winds are steady and strong. At my weight, I find it is a great board when I don't have to worry about the wind changing directions without warning or experiencing lulls.

I was using my iS105 with a 7.7 and the 34cm fin this past week. What a great combo. The lake had 2 miles of fetch, and it was a bit choppy. But with the sail fully powered up, I found it very easy to control.

Using this combo when the wind wasn't as friendly, I found it very difficult. When this happens, I use my FType 148 with the same sail.

I don't have an 8.5 to use on my iS105. My next larger sail is a 9.8, which is a great one for the FT148.
