Default Futura 104 or 114?

Hi All,

I'm trying to decide on which would be better suited to my size, sails and conditions. I'm 82 kg, 7m no cam as my largest sail, conditions reasonably rough chop, a little swell, etc. I like the 18-22 knot range as my preferred wind strengths but more often than not I sail in the 14-18 sea breeze conditions we get here. I'm after a Futura size that will get me upwind easily in lighter winds but will also handle stronger winds (18-22) when required. Will a 114 be a better option than the 104? I like the sound of the 114 but at 72 wide it seems quite large. I previously had a Fu111 at 69 wide which felt wide enough but I am wondering how the new 2015 boards compare to the older shapes?

Hi Radiant X,
my recommendation is the Futura 104. That's exactly the shape you are looking for. Quite similar in width with the iSonic 107, quite slim. The board is a speed machine with great freeride performance. Your 7.0m fits excellent for that kind of board and your personal body weight. The board will work fine with a 5,5 or 6,0 m sized sail too and works well with a bigger sized sail than 7,0.

Have fun on the water,

Chris

Thank you Chris. That is good news. I have ordered the 104 and am looking forward to using it. i think the 42cm fin should be a good size for the 7m also would you agree? It is also good to hear the 104 will also work well with a 6m as that is my next size down.
