Smile GO 133 2008 vs. 2009 + sail

Hi all, I am thinking of purchasing a Go 133. The shop I visited has a 2008 version.
I would like to know the difference between the 2 versions. Is it possible that the 2008 version cheaper than 2009 one (both are new boards)?
one more question is on the sail. The guy in the shop proposed a new Serverne NCX 8.0m2 (2008 version).
Is it a good match for the Go 133 board with the original DRAKE 480 fin?

thanks for your answers

Hello 11onze,
I do not know about the difference in price between the '08 Go 133 and the '09 Go 133.
Perhaps the '08 is priced better since it's a last years board.
To compare them, you would need to make sure they are both of the same construction.
There do not seem to be any major differences in hull shape, only differences in weight due to the different construction methods ( Go TufSkin vs Go Sport).
The 8.0 Severne NCX would seem to be a great sail/rig for the GO 133 if you have some experience.
The 48 cm Drake should will work fine. Get something a little larger if you want the absolute earliest planing performance.
I really liked the 7.5 NCX I had earlier this year, so the 8.0 should be real easy to rig and very light to sail if you get a 100% mast.
Hope this helps,
