The 80 can handle 4.2 rather well, but the 74 will of course be even better. As for slogging, the 74 will sink quite far at absolute standstill but if its close to 15 knots you will surely move along a bit and then it will keep you dry as long as you have the balance.

Took a Wave cult 80 for a slog in gusty 15 knot conditions over the weekend, this was the first time on a small board, I wanted to see what it would be like when the wind dropped off. Had no problem slogging, waterstart was fine (when I got a gust), but uphaul was just too difficult.

I still think I need a proper wave board for the mushy waves I want to sail in the South east england. I have been told the quad/evo would work well in those conditions. But I also travel a lot and need something that can handle strong winds on flat water, but will float well when the wind shuts down, and the sharks are getting hungry :-) I don't think I would feel safe enough on the smaller kodes in those situations.

So in a around about way I have realised my current Kode 103 probably needs to go. i.e. I should get a smaller FSW and a medium size (wide style) wave board. (Two boards is the max!)

At 72Kg would a Kode 94 run a 6.5M comfortably? (My biggest sail) its 3cm narrower so I hope it should handle the windy days better than the 103? Then I can get a proper wave board for the little waves I want to ride.

What are the real volumes of the Kode 94 and Kode 103 by the way?

I don't know the real volumes of the bigger Kodes, but they should be close enough to the stated volumes. Yes, the 94 will handle 6.5. I've ran up to 6.7 and even 7.0 even on the 86. Then a Quad 71 should work great as the smaller one. It will be an extremely versatile board at your weight.
