Default Futura 131 or 141 ?

Hello,

I may be considered intermediate weighing 90 kgs and 1.81 cm height, i am in footstraps but not gybing yet and our spot has many wind holes ,gusty most of the time (flat water mostly ) wind speed avg is 15-20 knots highest ..

I am planning to buy a futura this year , which size do you think is the best at my weight ? I was more interested in 141 but not sure yet..I use 8,2 and 7.8 sails and maybe can get a bigger one this year..

depends ...

what r u comfortable with now ?
my buddy was happy with his 160 / 80 board and went to 130 / 73 cm
he was sorry after
i stayed with my 160 / 79 cm and am still happy
why ?
we tend more towards the 15 knot area than 20
with the holes in the wind/gusty, you want flotation
both of us are over 100 kilos and use 8.x sails
a lighter buddy of mine is fine with his Futura 131
at our weights - and potential holey winds on flat water - perhaps the 141 ??

Hi Unregistered,

In your case I will go for the 141 and with a second fin Venom 46 for windy time, then you will have a huge wind range.

All the best

Default 141

Remi hi,

Do you think 141 will make a big difference under foot or against chop , will it be more difficult keeping it flat on water ?

best ,
