Hi Nonopr,

Both can be good in you case, but I will say because not hi-wind go for the HWR.

All the best

Hello,

My weight is 77 Kg and I currently have a 162, could you please indicate which are the main differences between the HWR and the 162? Would it be sensible to keep the 162 as a light wind board?

Also, what would be the main differences between the LWR and HWR in terms of upwind angle / downwind speed considering my weight?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Rafa

Hi Rafa,

If we compare the LWR and the HWR to the F162, you will notice big difference and the main one is about power for your back leg and glide.
The LWR is the less physical with top glide > HWR > F 160 > F161 > F162
The HWR is faster everywhere and in all conditions than the F162, so in my opinion, no.
For up wind only in the lower wind the LWR will be for you little less angle and speed, but down wind will be faster and more free under your feet. But if you want to keep your F 162, the better option will be F162 and LWR.
For one board is depending of your style, if you are more a power man or a gliding man and of course about the main condition you use it.
If most of the time under 18 knots, I will say the HWR, over LWR.

Hope this help

All the best

Please can you shine a bit more light on the peculiar new cut out shape? where is the clean shape. all corners and small steps confuse me.... so I guess it will confuse the water flow also? Why, for instance is the new shape stopped 1 cm before the real side cut out start making the rail in the last cm just not as clean as possible?

Maybey Jim Drake or Tiesda can give some inside flow explanation on this?

Hi Everyone
I am a light weight formular windsurfer with a weight of 65kg and will be windsurfing in condition between 8 - 16 knots. I will be placing an order soon, so please can anyone advise on which will be better between the HWR AND LWR.

If possible also what is the 3 sail range for my weight.

Regards
Sey1

Hi Unregistered,

For your weight the LWR will be a better choice, more easy to get the max speed on it compare to the HWR who need more power. This board is built specially for light guys like you.

All the best

I'm lightweight too, 62kg..
Agree on the board - LWR, for sail range you only need 2: 11 for light wind (70cm fin), 9.0 for high wind(66-62 cm fin); boards/sails/fins progressed far enough so
no need for the third sail or a fin.

What I am reading is that in order to be competitive I will need 2 formula boards next season.
1 for lightwind and 1 for hi wind???
The point of the FW class rules that put boards on a 2 year cycle was to eliminate things like this and make formula easier to get into.
