I'm a 180lb weekend sailor who loves to go fast and carve jibes on face of 3' to 5' waves. Local conditions her in Grand Bahama, Bahamas are mainly on shore with lots of upwind sailing to reach the reef. 15- 25mph is the norm. Looking at a futura or isonic 111 or 122 but need advise. sails are 5.5 to 7.0 freerides. Help

I would go for a Futura 111/101. I have a Futura 93l and I can get planing nicely at around 15mph with a 5.6m (bearing in mind I'm 120lbs).

Especially if you're into carving on wave faces, the Futura might be a better option than the iSonic, as it will be more forgiving.

If you're going to be using mainly the smaller sized sails < 6.0m you'd better go for a 101, IMHO.
