Default Board Recommendation

Hi,

Im looking for a board with the capacity of early planing and the fastest one for lights winds. I will be sailing at flat waters. I'm 6'0 , 191 pounds.

What do you mean by light winds? If 10m2+ wind, then you need a formula. If it's 8m2 wind or less, then an S-type 126 or 137 or iSonic 133...

Look forward to reading other peoples replies...

Hi James,

To help make a more accurate recommendation (there area few options...) it would be good to have some more detail on your actual "light wind" windspeed/intended sail sizes, also the sailing style (FW/slalom/freeride). Let us know, then you'll see some good info...

Cheers ~ Ian

Hi,

Well, we have here around 8-18m2, I will be running freeride. Currently I have a GO 155 with a North Sail natural 7.0. When the wind is high Im planing find. At low winds the board can't get planing, so that's the reason Im looking for a board that feels fast at low winds ...

Any suggestions or recommendations will be aprecciated ....

Thanks
