BTW buying a new board and finding it broken would be a horrible experience for me.
Serenity had a very little scratch of the sharp stern edge, but this was for sure caused by the red flag I've attached to the tail of the long pack for carrying it from Munich (Munchen-DE) to Venice.
I think in similar situation I would wait for a new board, asking an used old one for the months I'me waiting (f.e. from rental), and obviously for free; with cars I've heard they do this way.

Well nakaniko that was my initial though but as I had just sold both my Starboard Formula and 133 isonic I really needed a bigger board to relieve the boredom of those lighter wind days. I really wasn't prepared to wait another 3 months for one so I pushed hard for a better deal through various sources and finally they have let me have this board (now repaired) until a new one arrives in the country. I pick it up tonight so am hoping for some lightish winds for this weekend to try the thing out. I will write a report on here as soon as I have tested it.

I sailed the ultrasonic and turbo 9.2 yesterday in 7-9 m/s wind.
The board planes really easy, has a very low planing thresfold and it is really a fast board in light winds and points very high. The gusts were up to 11 m/s and that caused me no problem(88 kg). The place I sailed has a lot of big chop and it just flies over. That impressed me a lot.
I did feel the size of the board though, so I am looking forward to try my friends isonic 117 to compare the fun factor.

Have you tried it in light winds as yet? Will be interesting to see how the US147 is in real light winds, 7ms to 11ms is about 13k to 22k, a fair bit of wind me thinks

Yes, me too.
I would like to hear more reactions with e.g. 10-11m2 gear (or bigger) in very light winds, i.e. 8 - 12 knots.
If I would buy the US147, it would be primarily for these conditions.

My point was the very good comfort and control I felt when the wind picked up.
At the end of the session it was abaout 11-15 knots and I was able to have a good time in these conditions, but with my 9.2 turbo and 90 kg I am not sure that I would be able to plane in less wind.
My pumping is very bad, so I guess with better pumping it would be another story.
I will try to get out this week as the forecast says light winds.
My friend is 74 kg and sailed futura 122 and overdrive 7.5 and was not able to plane when I was having a ball planing on my gear.
