Hi folks,

another question : I am 78 kg and have an Ultrasonic for 7.7, 9,2 and maybe a bigger sail. For 7.7. and ~7,0 I was thinking of the new 110 isonic. Appreciate your recommendations.

Regards

Yes the 110 is an option, but as you don't intend going above 7.7m but also want to use 7m... Id favour the 107 on this occasion....

Hello,

I'm between 72-75 kg. surf mainly on shore and I'd call myself a intermediate windsurfer.
The question I'd like to ask here on the forum is this one.

Last year I bought a second hand Fanatic Ray 145 LTD for the light wind conditions we mostly have here in Belgium and the Netherlands so I spent most of my surfing on lakes.
The problem is that the ray although planning very fast, I'd say 7-10 knots / 3BF is getting big very fast for me when we have gusts or when the wind picks up.
I sail this board with a 9m Maui Sails Titan, my biggest sail.
No I was wondering whether an Ultrasonic would give me more control and planning ability in light wind situations than the RAy or would an Isonic 127 better be suited for me.
The ray is 81cm wide and I sail it with the 50cm provided fin and a stiffer 52 cm fin


My other board is a 111 Futura (2010) that I sail with a 5.2 Arrows , 6.7 vapor and 7.6 vapor.
fins futura standard 42 cm and a 44cm / 36cm MFC fin

I'd like too hear especially from US owners (rdsurf) with my weight and how the board behaves when the wind picks up let's say 4 Bf. I just want to go blasting over the water as quick as possible .. the girlfriend is learning how to windsurf so we often go in light wind conditions and I want to have some fun at that time to.

thanks I appreciate some feedback .. it's quite hard to make the right decision .. the fanatic is a great planning board .. but I think it suits heavier sailors better.

I am sure one of the SV International guys could comment here, but if you are saying you have difficulty in controlling your Ray 145 ltd in stronger winds, then comparing the Ultrasonic and Isonic 127. The Isonic 127 would give you all round better control for sure.......... But if you wish to plain even sooner than your Ray then it would be the Ultrasonic for sure........ But looking at your next board being F111 the IS 127 would give you better compatibility for sure...

Hmmm, well looking for the light wind ultimate racing machine .. the IS 127 might fit the bill.
628 does the IS 127 take the 9m sail well ?
Would it plane as quick as the US .. it's wider than the RAY true but it's also an Isonic .. well riding the futura [love the board] I wonder if the IS is so much harder [ it's wider and mallet] so I guess you're really need to do some active pumping to get it going .. but in light wind conditions it's most of the times blasting as fast as possible anyway ..so . What's your take on it and when do you start planning.
I'm a little ,I wouldn't call it afraid, that the IS 127 is a very technical board that you need to tune quite right every time to get the most of it .. I know that counts for every board but the US would be more forgiving and more relax I guess.
Wouldn't the IS 121 and the F111 overlap too much ... I'd like to hear from rdrsurf since he's almost the same weight.

Man it's though :-) anyway I still have some time [it's snowing right now here in Belgium] but I might go to the bOOt in Dusseldorf next weekend ...:-)

I was just wondering whether the UltraSonic is overkill for a 72 kg rider in low wind conditions or the ultimate light wind solution ..??

Hi Stargazer

What ever your weight is, this is a scale can help you :

The ultimate ligth wind machine :

1) Formula
2) UltaSonic 147
3) iSonic 137/127
Etc

But something to notice that the Formula is an extremely technical board and high physical demand particularly for your back leg and not as fast in reach vs US147. Also need a very active pumping while the US147 is very easy due to the extra length.
Then you have the iSonic who need also more active pumping to get on the plane because they are shorter to get the ultimate control that this boards need in hi wind.
So US 147 is the most easiest board to get on plane with the less physical demand.

Hope this help

All the best

Hi Stargazer,

The 9m is fine on the IS127 and I think at your weight the US 147 is overkill for early planning and will be more technical in the stronger winds compared with the IS 127 with your weight.

THanks Remi,628

It' s makes it a little hard but I think the US would give me the best all-round experience in light wind and that is what I'm looking for without sailing anything much bigger than 9m as soon as the wind picks uo let's say a steady 4 BF I'll be switching to my F111 and vapor's anyway.
So thanks I think I'll be going for the US don't know whether it's going to be wood or carbon yet .. we'll see ... might buy a 2012 version
