Default Ultrasonic 147 <-> Falcon 134 in 12-17 kots

A couple of days ago, me and my friend were out in 12-17 knots on a spot full of lulls.
My friend on his Falcon 134 (82 wide) + 8.6 NP RS:Slalom and me on the US147 + 8.8 Gun MXS.

We did a few back-to-back figure-8 slalom races, but my friend really had no chance.
I was always first onto the plane and handled the lulls far better which resulted in better pointing and getting first at the buoys, all the time.

I've also tried his gear and I noticed that the Falcon felt much smaller under the feet. Logically, I suppose, because of the smaller dimensions of the board.
On the reach and slightly down wind, I felt that I was faster on the falcon.

In a PWA type of slalom race - i.e. all the time slightly down wind and not too many lulls - I probably would not have had a chance.

It just points out the difference of these types of boards and their usage.
