Two Evo or Kodes?
Iím looking to replace my two boards with either kodes or evos as soon as I can. I currently ride JP 89l freemove and 66l wave, and wave sails 6.3-3.5m. The boards are relatively old school (both 2001, but the sails are a new quiver).
I weigh 59kgs, and sail on the sea, south coast UK, mostly bump and jump, with wave riding cross-onshore. The 89l is a little too big at times and Iím keen to reduce this size, and gap between boards. I usually use 5.0m as crossover.
I have had conflicting advice from dealers and friends on whether to go for 2 evos or 2 kodes or one of each, and am a little confused! Am I right this is more to do with sailing style?
I was planning to go for Kode 86 as my lighter wind board and 68 for
high wind, but am concerned 68 will be too big for small kit.
Conversely I am not sure if evo 80 will be too sluggish on my 6.2 as my light wind board, and some have said the pairing of evo 80 and 62 gap is too big?
Unfortunately I am not able to try any of these! Any advice would be gratefully received.
