Default Carve 131 or 141 liters for Colorado Sailor?

Hi

I'm debating between the starboard carve 131 and 141. I weigh 184 pounds and live / will use the board in Colorado. (lighter/thinner air + fresh water.) Sail sizes I'll use it with: 5.9 and 7.5. (occassionaly 5.2 but not alot of 5.2 days here.)

I want something that planes quickly, is fun and lively (doesn't feel too big/roll over in swell, and I can track upwind well/perfect all around board for Colorado Conditions. I currently use a 125liter goyafxr which is a wide/short design and it's a little tough in light wind and a little too big in very high winds- I have an 87 liter JP for very windy days here.)

Leaning towards the 141 liter but wondering if that's too much and might be better off with/have more fun with the 131. Thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks!!

Hi Scott,
Do you plan to keep sailing the 125 liter Goya?
If so, the Carve 131 would overlap quite a bit.
If not then the Carve 131 sounds better.
I have not sailed the larger new Carves, but did sail the 2011
Carve 111 this weekend and it sails farily big, so the C-131 could be good
if you don't keep the Goya.
If you keep the Goya, the Carve 141 will get you going very early, but a little larger
sails (8.5 m2?) would seem appropriate for light winds on the 141.
Hope this helps,
Roger

Thanks, Roger

I'm planning on selling the 125 FXR and having just one board in this size range.

Sounds like the 131 might be a better fit.

Thanks
