Default Futura 122 combined with Severne Glide 8,5

Will the combination Futura 122 and Severne Glide 8,5 be ok?
Or will Glide 8,5 be to big?
I see that Starboard recomend sail up to 9,0 m2
But the Glide is with chambers and can probably be compared with a nocam-sail that is more than 1 m2 bigger? Therfore; will the Glide 8,5 m2 be to big for the Futura 122? My weight is 75 kg.

Best regards

Hi Jacob,
The 8.5 Glide on the Futura 122 would see to be about the ultimate early planing 120 liter board.
If you have smaller sails for 14 knots and up, I think the Glide/Futura combination would be very good.
The early Glide 7.5 that I've been sailing gets just about anything going super early.
It's light and has lot's of power and I would expect the newer 8.5 Glide to be similar.
It should be great!
Hope this helps,
