I don't know Roger who answered from jp but thats what he told me . He said that wider boards would get me to plane sooner but once they planned would feel very large boards for my weight and maybe the x-cite ride 134 would be better for me. Anyway I will have the chance tomorrow of borrowing a larger fin and have some turns with a jp slalom board 82cm and an isonic 85cm so I'll tell you how it feels if you don't mind.
Thanks for the advise for the fin.

You also have to consider that of course I'm not so experienced as other guys here and have not tested so many boards so I have lots of questions

I agree with Roger. From my own experience I really love wider boards with their easy planning. You do not always even have to use a huge sail. I mostly have nice rides with 7.6 to JP SLW or isonic 127. JP SLW goes planning with 7.6 in 5-6 m/s and there is no big difference using a 9.0.

Try formula gear if you live in a 12knot area!! or @ 72kg i would i would get a 85cm wide slalom or freerace board with a 9.0 maybe, even if you can plane as early with a fuller 7.5 sail, you have no power to go upwind, which is boring if you have to struggle to get back.
