Default Futura 93 For Lightweight Rider

Hi Kevin,

I'm 54kg and am particularly interested in the Futura 93 as a medium - high wind board.

I can waterstart well on both tacks, get planning in the straps and 50% of the time can get jibes round (carving 100%, but sometimes screwing up on the rig flip).

Do you think this board will be manageable in quite high wind for my weight? (possibly up to bft 7 with a 4.5)

Apparently these boards pretty much sail themselves and really want to test one, especially for the easy jibing. I just don't want to buy one and realize that for high wind I may have been better off with something smaller...
