I'm looking for a freeride board for light sailor ( my weight is <65kg)
to fit lake conditions and for sails between 5.2 -7.4, so between
blasting and cruising and for some tricks on flat and in a choppy lake.
Also this board should take a place of my good old slalom F2 Sputnic -96
103l and hopely get planing much earlier.
I have four options F2 Ride 277, 277 and AHD Free Diamond 65, Maxx ride
The volume of F2 Ride 279 (116l) and AHD FD 65 (115l) would be good for
taking me over lulls on the lake, and they carry easily 7.5 for my
weight, but then the windier days of 5.0 keeps me thinking, if those
boards can be used for my weight in that wind and also in choppy
conditions. Those days are very unusual and I do not want to buy a board
to use only few times a year, but I do not want to stand on the shore
either when it blows.
Then F2 Ride 277 (102l) and AHD Maxx ride 62 (104l) are giving more for
windier days, but what about when I want to go out with 7.4 two camber
sail. I have read that for lighter surfer the AHD MR 62 can carry about
I'm not sure if, AHD MR 62 is a little too freestyle/wave type for me
when a want to ride some straight lines, but then I also would like make
and learn more tricks than basic jibes and there it seems to be on its
Summer and wind(?) coming,
