Default question about early planing

Hi Kevin,
I want to by a light wind board, and allready have a carve 111 for medium winds
If I use the same sail size 6.8/7.5 17-22nds on a carve or futrura, what board is earlear planing, 122 or 133? in flat and little chop water?.
I have the option to by a new carve 133 mod 07, or the new futura 122 or (133 I think too large for this size of sail, I do not want to use bigger sails than that), ..but I have a much better price on carve! Is it better to wait for the carve and pay the difference? and 122 ?
Thanks in advance
Axel

Axel,

The new Furtura is meant to be amazing. I know the boys in Thailand put alot of time and effort into making this board really good. They combined the Stype (my favorite) with the Carve and came up with the futura. I have yet to ride the 122 but from what I did ride in the smaller ones is that they do plain up really fast. I think if you get a wood version of the Futura you will be really happy with it.

Hope that helps
