All the best
Tnx for your reply Remi,
I'm glad mine came with the regular tuttle box!

That's when I have my hands full with the IS87 + 5.7 sail.
LOL.

8.6 in 25knots... no way for me, 7.6 maybe if it´s not too gusty or choppy, but i would not last long, perhaps 2 or 3 gybemarks... acceleration after gybes will be instant!
6.7 will be almost comfy..
Just proves how fit or..perhaps big some of the PWA guys are!

Professionals vs Amateurs, we just cruise around by comparison, and last I checked the big professionals were all above 100Kg!! having said that in 25 knots a light, 70-80Kg, rider with a 6.6-7.0 can probably go as fast (ask Taty).

Where I surf, the chop builds up nicely at 25 knots.
If the wind is offshore, I should be able to handle it as well with my 6.7 but with onshore wind, no way. I'm getting too old for this I think.
Much depends also of course how you define 25 knots,
Is it 20 average with peaks to 25, or is it 25 average with peaks to 30.

But yes, I remember seeing Ben VDS on 7.8, while we were all on 5.7 - 6.2 at our local spot. Embarrassing.

Interesting seeing how people use their iS107. For me at 98kg, my favorit combo is the iS107/9m in 15k to 20k, love it Admitedly, the 9m is right on the max sail size for this board. I recently changed my 9m for an 8.6m and 9.5m. Not used the 8.6m on the iS107 as yet but expect it to be spot on, hopefully get to in a few days, I remember BD saying he really liked his iS107/8.6m combo. I guess it goes to show that the flat vee to double concave on the iS107 has a massive range, and works perfect with all sails from 6.7m to 9m, I think the iS107 is the best in the iSonic range. Would love to hear a bit about the 2013 proto's, and whats been improved. I think the 2013 iSonics have now been agreed

Thanks for the input, Mark.
You're convincing me more and more towards the 107
