Default Your recommendation?

Dear Sirs,

I weight 72 kg. I sail 85% in a flat water lake between 8-12 knots. 15% of time I sail at the open sea between 12-20 knots. I sail three out of 4 weekends in a month.

I own only a 8.0 sail.

All I want is to buy a board that allows me to plane as often as possible with a reasonable upwind/downwind capacity.

What would you recommend me?

Best Regards,

I think the Is-122 is the board for the 85% of the your time in 8-12 knots with a 8.0. YOu could also get away with the Is-111, that would work better in > 12 knots , I just got one and it is a great board. But with 8 knots winds, the Is-122 should give you more comfort and performance.

Hi,
depends on the sail (cam, nocam). The Futura 122 or Kode 122 would make sense as well.
For really light wind the Futura 133 would be a great choice with 8,0.
Sure the iSONIC fits well, if your sail should have some cams.

Give me some infos about your sailmodel and your skills,
Chris
