QUOTE - "As posted below, i sail in a lake with 30 centimeters chop max at 20 knots of wind max, still advised the is96? "

BTW .. with these wind strengths are we are talking average or max? There is obviously a big difference. I am assuming average. So a 19 knot wind will have gusts to about 23 or 24 knots.

Hmm for lake type conditions, this would be my personal preference for a 70kg rider (same weight as me) .... thinking ... thinking ...

The is101 for 14 to 20 knots, then switch to cheap waveboard.

The is96 for 16 to 21 knots, then switch to cheap waveboard.

Final conclusion .... if it was my largest board (and perhaps only board) then definately the is101 to get max time on water.

Sorry mate. Not sure. Guess you have tried searching on the forums here.

To further back up the 101 conclusion, I have found that with the lightweight construction of these slalom/race boards (or bloody fast blasting boards) that you can handle a lot more wind compared to a board which may weigh an extra kg.

There both 96 ltrs, but the iS101 will definetly feel "one size" bigger than the iS96 in 20k plus winds.

Hi UnReg & Marc h,

Thnx a lot for your details, nice to know both IS have same volume, is there any web site to get all the IS volumes?
If so, nice to keep that in our files.

Hi All,

I weight 73kg and Am about 173 in height..

If I had to choose I will not close my eyes and take one but i will see what benefits me and my $$$.

As a rider who gets to try almost all the boards, I will give you my opinion.

The 101 is a board that i personally like and I have sailed it in Open water with 1 meter swells and like the handling very well. it doens't get nervous like the 94 or 96 does..

Sailed with it with my 6.8 down to 6.3 and didn't had any problem even in overpwer conditions with wind 25 knots..

Maybe it's me that like big boards but with a 70kg the 101 It should be enough for you..

at 20 knots max, the 101 is sure a board to go for..

Taty
