Default Help on which Carve - 2012 or 2011

Hi guys,
my name is Carlo and need a bit of help in deciding what board best fit for me.
I am 92Kg, 195cm and own a JP Supersport 136 Lt. 80cm width (2008) for light wind and a SB Kode 112 (68cm width) for stronger wind.

I am going to replace the JP since I find it is slowing down my learning curve. Maybe itís too technical - I can water start and put feet into streps and donít Jibe - Main issue is Jibing as well as on choppy water the board become hard to handle.

Choice falls on Carve and I decided on 131 lt. 2011 model. But I got then confused by the new 2012 model that is larger and half way between the Carve 2011 and my JP then though it would be the board of life for light wind conditions.

I am looking for a board that makes me improving faster than I do today to be use on both lake and coast water and to be used in light wind conditions. I have Point-7 sails: 8.0 Square, 6.6 AC-0 and 5.0 Sado and planning to buy a 9.0 as well.

Thus the advise Iíd like to get are:
1. Is the 131 lt. the right choice for me?
2. If above is the right one, Would it be better the 2012 (wider) model since I guess would improve early planning and be able to handle bigger sais (maybe by adding another bigger fin)

Thanks in advance
Best Regards,
Carlo

Hi Carlo,

In your case particularly with 8.0 & 9.0 I will recommend you the Carve 141, you will plane very early, comfortable in perfect balance with this 2 sails. Jibe will be easy all the way in the curve with a nice exit.

Have Fun

Remi,
thank you very much!

I guess that the C141 will also be able to handle the 6.6 AC-0 although then I could move on the Kode 112 with same sail when wind increases.

I assume there is no difference then between 2011 and 2012 since they handle the same sails range.

Do you recommend to add an extra fin?

Hi Carlo,

Yes you can use 6.6 with 42 on it but sure you will be better on Kode 112 with this size.

All the best
