You have to be kidding WTF????

I for one will be canceling my order, guess the shop is going to upset with you jokers!

AND whats the obsession with increasing the widths, you've taken a perfectly good board, the most versatile in the Futura range, and stuffed it, well done guys.

Will take my Technora 2010 back, which is now the same weight as a wood board, and save my $$$.

Hi Maximus

The board is a bit wider at 30 but came very quickly more narrow, this give a better length balance a top end speed so better comfort and of course you will be faster and stay versatile.

Hope this help to understand the shape anyway try to post photos next week.

All the best

Default Futura and wide tail

To Rémi:
You wrote;

If so I think it will function well. I have the Futura 111 (2010) and i Love it, but as I had Lorchboards some years ago, I have just bougth a Lorch "Offroad" 102 with the so called wingertail. Its a relative wideboard, but narrow in the tail after 30 cm (also a great board).
with regards
JJ

Hy

I had som tow with the new 2012 futura 111, the tail witdh is on the 30 cm point 45,9, on the 2011 it was 43 cm, and i must say the board feels fantastic on the water superfast easier upwind and better gybing then the 2011 wood version i had.
The minus point was the plaining of the board ,do his weight technora wood version 7.9 kg and my old 2011 around 7 kg, but with a little pumping you can do the job , and then the 2012 is even faster then the 2011 , I must say more + points dan minus points

Hi Haggar

The feeling on the water is better a litlle more higher on the water and the top end control in choppy conditions even better then the 2011 a little bit closer to the Isonic for my feeling but then with easier futura feeling gybing is better then the 2011 , I liked it very much

Looks like an extra 800 grams has not ruined the Futura, after all. Maybe it is the end of the "always lighter" myth.
