Default 09 Isonic 111 agressive non slip & 6.7m

A couple of questions.

Is anyone else finding the non slip on the deck to be too aggressive?? With a lot of pumping in light wind sailing my feet are almost red raw. Are the decks generally more aggressive or is it just my board?? Should I try rubbing it back a bit or just put up with it until it smooths out from use??

Secondly. I use this board mainly with my NP RSS 7.8m but the other day I tried with my RSS 6.7 and it wasn't too comfortable. A little bouncy and front foot was light. When I drop the somewhat high boom I use it was better but still not a comfortable stance. Any suggestions for set up with a smaller sail. I'm assuming a 6.7m is within the wind range of the 111.

IF you find the grip to be to harsh on your foot, try a sanding it a little with a 600 grit sandpaper, just one pass all over the board and it will take the edge of the grip a little.

Antoine Albeau used the same configuration (IS 111 and RS 6.7) for the channel crossing.

Hi Waiting4wind,

Height boom is around my eyes with long adjustable harness line. The mast foot behind compare the 7,7 position with a Deboichet SL2 or SL4 36. In this configuration I have no problems with an excellent speed.

All the best
