2008 Starboard Isonic 101
I am an advanced San Francisco Bay Area windsurfer. I use 93 liter JP freestyle wave and 76 liter wave board with freestyle wave sails. Winds in bay area tend to diminish by the end of August from 20-25 mph average to 10-15mph. My gear is too small for this wind range. So I am thinking about getting a slalom board and a slalom sail so that I can extend my season or make the season year around as long as conditions permit.
I want to get your opinion about the 2008 Isonic 101. I weigh 160 lbs and I want to use the board in 12-16 mph range. I have never used a slalom board. I am used to FSW boards with big wide footstraps on the center for jumps and tricks. I heard that Isonic is a technical board. I was wondering if this board might be somewhat difficult for me to ride. Would Futura be a better option? And interns of volume I heard that 101 is actually 96 liters. Is that true? Should I go bigger? And what sail size would suit best for 101 and for my weight? I am aiming for either a 5.8 or 6.2 Neil Pryde RS mk3.
I will appreciate any comments and recommendation.
