Understand that my recommendations is based on where I sail because there is no way you would catch me on a Carve 111 with a sail smaller then 5.5.

What about Isonic 94? Why not in choppy conditions?

I don't have the 94, but the new 2010 version is a scaled down version of the 101 so it would work. In rough choppy conditions I prefer the Futura over the Isonic.

The availability on Peru for the Futura would be at least for December, so i'm getting an Isonic 94 carbon wood. I'll try it and if not comfortable i'll sell it to buy a Futura for next year. ln this kind of board, should i be trying to have the weight more towards the board or to the side? How about position of the straps; should the back strap be in front of the fin or outside?
