Default isonic 127

Hi ,

I need some advice from you guys the expert , I been sailing slalom for a good few years now , not too bad on gybing and tacking , i love to sail in strong wind, the more the better .

However these few months , where i come from the wind suddenly refuse to come , they just refuse , STOP COMPLETELY . So the day has come for me the get a light board , so , it's either Isonic 127 or 137 . I'll be riding with a 8.6 metre sail . i know you 127 is ideal , however the specs is not much different compare with the 137 maybe i bit here or there like volume and length etc.i"m only 72 kg ,

Thank you

if you don't like to pump, or your sailing style is passive or you're heavyweight you could benefit from
extra volume/length/ etc of 137; sounds thought that 127 is better match for you

Hi Chocolate,

At 72kgs and with a 8.6 the best board will be the 117 Wide. The perfect sail for this board. Don't need to go for the 127 or 137 who is really for much more heavy racers with bigger sails. This of course to get the best performances according to your weigh and sail.

Hope this help

All the best
