Isonic 133 or 144 for ultra light wind
I asked the below question to Kevin but he was not sure. Maybe one of you could answer.
I am Tur53 from Alacati. I am just about to finalize my order for the boards.
I will for sure get 101, 111 and 122. The next size will be either 133 or 144. This last board, I plan to use with 9.0 and 9.8 sails. I am 80 kg and we sometimes have to do some privately sponsored races at around 8-11 knots. (for these conditions I have an R14 soft 60cm fin) Between 11 and 14 knots I will use an R13 medium 48cm fin. From 14 knots onwards I will step down to my 122 with 9.0 anyway.
For the range from 8 knots to 13 do you think that it would be wiser for me to get a 144 or would it not make any difference in light wind planning considering my 80 kg weight.
I have to decide soon so your answer at your earliest convenience will be much appreciated.
All the best.
