Hi MOP,

Regarding what your are looking for with your weight, I confirm you Futura 141 with Glide 8,5 and Ncx 6,5.
Please understand that I didn't say that the Glide 8,5 on the the Futura 133 are not good, but the 141 will be far better.
Personally I prefer the Glide 8,5, it's really a machine to get early planning so far better than Element or Ncx in this part. For stability in gust the Ncx will be the best. For performance in light winds I will choose the Glide and the Ncx for stronger winds.

All the best

Hi Remi
Ok, you have at last convinced me,- I will go for Futura 141 combined with Glide 8,5!! Thank you for your help!
Last question (for this evening):
Since I will shange my big board with a new Futura 141 I will altso like to shange my small board as well (thats the good thing about windsurfing,- its so much equipement)!!
I am thinking about bying the new Kode 103 or the new Futura 101. Can you please tell me the difference between this boards? The most important thing for me is jibing.

Regards Jacob

Hi Remi
I have just ordered following 2010 model sails:
- NCX pro 6,5 (combined with a Redline 430 SDM).
- Gator 5,5 (combined with a Redline 430 SDM).
- Gator 4,7 (combined with a Redline 430 SDM or a 370 Naish firestick).

I guess that the NCX 6,5 and the Gator 5,5 will be the sails mostely used on the smallest board.
What board will be the most sutable?

Regards Jacob

Jary,
If you opt for the Futura and want to use that 4.7 Gator then you may want to consider the 93 liter version. I'm 79 kilos and my 93 liter Futura easily uses 4.5 to 6.5 sails.

Hi Jary,

Now is really depend of what you want, for speed and easy jibe I will say Futura 93 as Coachg, but for maneuvrability and super jibe the Kode 94 but it will be slower than the Futura.

Hope this help

All the best

Hi again Jary,

This really turned into an interesting thread !
I happy to se you have opted for the futura - Great choice.

When it comes to your small board I find it quite tricky to chose between the two boards in question. Had the Code 103 been fitted with at tuttle fin I would definitely have picked that. I think it really boils down to which wind range you envisage to cover - And have you got a smaller wave board for those 12 m/s + days ? If you have a waveboard, I would go for the Futura. Otherwise you will have give Remi a bit more info on your sailing preferences.

Hi Jawa
Thank you very much for responing two times, very helpful!
To day I have an JP X-cite ride 120 with NCX 8,0 and NCX pro 6,5
combined with a JP Freestyle Wave 93 and Gator 5,5 and 4,7

To be able to sail more in light wind I will shange out the JP X-cite ride 120 with a Futura 141. Sails for the Futura 141 will be a Glide 8,5 combined with the NCX 8,0 I allready have.

But then I think that I have to shange out thr JP Freestyle Wave 93 with a little bigger board that can take the NCX pro 6,5 (Futura 101?).
This is because I want to be able to alternate the NCX 6,5-rig between the Futura 141 and the Futura (?) 101 when the wind conditions is just in between!

For the few days with 12 m/s + I have to sail with the new Futura 101/Kode 103 and my smallest sail; Naish 4,2

My sailing preferences is manely blasting, jibing and jumping (intermediate level). But the most important thing for me is to be able to sail when I have the opportunety inbetween two small kids, wife and to much work..

So Jawa, can you please give me some more advices?
And why do you recomend so strongely a tuttle fin??

Very thankful if Remi altso could respond.

Regards Jacob

Although I'm no expert with fins, I believe that a lot of high end fins come in Tuttle box and that this box is the strongest. Having the ability to increase the performance of a board by being able to buy the best fins for it may indeed be a strong argument. Again, I'm not sure if this is the reason for Jawa emphasizing this type of fin box, just an idea.

Hi again,

It is really all about finding the best two board quiver for a very specific sailing location. I do not know if you have allready ordered the F 141, but if I where in your position I would chose the following setup:
Big Board: F 131 wood carbon. Crisp. Super fast. Super fun. At your weigth, and with a powerful cam sail, I rekon you will be smokin from 5-6 m/s. I have sailed the board, and was powered up at 6-7m/s with a smaller sail (7,0m2 RS Neil Pryde), and a not ideal fin (40 or 42 cm standard Drake). The board sailes like a small board, wich my Carve 140ish did not. The fun factor means alot to me, and I would gladly sacrifice the 1 m/s lower planning threshold of a F141, which I admit I have not sailed. I expect the F131 to still be a great ride at 12 m/s, but from 9m/s onwards you would switch to your smaller board.
Small Board: I would go for the Acid 94 - Wood will do. Plenty of speed and control in a rough seastate, and you will be rocking until you max out your wind registre at 16 -18 m/s. For the average 10 m/s to 12 m/s you will be perfectly dialed. I also have to do my sailing in between the obligations which come from having to smallish kids. My sailing level is experienced but by no means radical. I know how to load up the fin properly for a slalom style ride, and can exit my jibes still planing. The two boards mentioned would also be my preferred setup - even at 100 Kgs.
Regardless of your eventual decission - Best of winds, and enjoy the ride !
