Default 2013 Futura 121 or 131 w/ 8,5m camber as light wind

I´m 80kg, conditions are chop, fairly gusty. I have a 75L wave board and 100L JP Freestyle Wave, now looking to add a board that can help me get planing and have fun & speed on the water more often. I'm an intermediate surfer, get 85% of jibes right, always use outer position for foot straps etc.

To go with a 8,5 m2 camber sail mainly (some time 6,7m2) I am considering Futura 121 or 131?
I want the early planing, but am concerned 131 feels like a "very big board" before I have good enough for my Freestyle Wave. Or is the gap between 100L FSW and Futura 121 already big enough because of all the added width?

Any thoughts?

Hi Unregistered

In your case the Futura 131 will be the best one to get early planing and improve your jibe with an 8.5. The width is in perfect accordance with the sail so you won't feel it like big board at all
have fun
all the best

Thank´s for helpful reply. With the 6,7m2 and a smaller fin; is a big board like 131 (vs 121) difficult to control in chop?

Hi unregistered, if you want a board to cover 8.5 to 6.7 then why not look at the JP 124 Superpsort? I have one and I use both those size sails on it although I would also say that the Futura 121 would probably do an equally good job.
