Default 2 board Futura quiver

Hi All,

I am considering buying futura's because they are so easy and fast. Currently I have 3 boards but I want to switch to two. I have the following sails: NCX 5.5 and 6.0 and KaSails Race 7.0 7.9 en 8.7. Which board would fit best

Futura 90/124
Futura 90/134
Futura 97/124
Futura 97/134

Curious as to what your thougths are?

Regards,

Meindert

90/124 would be good. 90/5.5,6,7 & 124 7,7.9,8.7. The middle size sail would be the sweet spot for each board. That's really the key, pick your two most used sails and the board size is an easy choice.

That sounds like a plan but since i am surfing more in light winds I am also considering 97 and 134 or even 104 and 134...

Any thoughts?

134 would be great with 7.9 and 8.7, that would be your light wind kit.

For moderate wind then 7m/97 would be an excellent combo, and off course would be sweet with the 6m, and ok with the 5.5.

In-fact 7/97 is about my favorite combo, such a big wind range, just great fun to sail.

Hi Meindert

Just remind that the 124 is 76 cm wide and handle perfectly your big sails, now the question is which is the ranking of your most use sails?
For 5.5 & 6.0, sure that tha 90 Will be thé best.

All thé best

Hi Meindert,

This year I surfed a couple of times with Futura 93 (90) and it handles 7.0 (17-30 Kts)with ease for speedsurfing on flat water (give it enough fin!), while the 5.5 (30-45 Kts) and 6.0 (22-35 Kts) NCX wil be perfect for high wind blasting. My weight is exactly the same as you. If you give the Futura 93 the right fin it will work very nice with you 7.0 in solid 4-5 Bft conditions and stronger winds,

Last year I surfed most of the time with Futura 101 (97). This board feels like a large 93 and handles significantly larger sails than the 93 (90). With my 7.7 and 7.4 for speedsurfing the board felt still in her sweetspot. 7.0 and 6.0 are very nice allrounders and 5.5 may be a little bit large on 101 (97), but because of the huge trim range of the Futura 101 there's still no problem. The Futura 101 (97) won't blow from the water.

The funny thing is when I compare the 93 and 101 I don't realy feel any difference in topspeed with 7.0. It's just the sail quiver you want to sail, your style and level, together with water conditions which may decide for you which 2015 board is better: 90 or 97?

For low and mid wind blasting I would definitely choose the Futura 124. I think its no problem for the Futura 114 to handle the 8.7, but 7.9 and 8.7 will be really sweetspot with 124 and 7.0 on that only occasion will also be ok with 124 (I surfed the F133 with NCX 7.0 in 20-30 Kts and board stayed on the water and I had fun, while Futura 93 should be the board to surf with).

So maybe 90/124 for the highest windrange with the most fun (90) with 5.5 and 6.0 and best trim with 7.9 and 8.7 (124) while having a 7.0/90 speedcombination on flat water (handles with ease) and a cross-over comb 7.0/124 which is very fun to sail aswell!

Cheers, Hans Kleingeld
