12-16kn

Last Saturday the wind was less than expected, this I could get a decent 'speed' on my Fanatic Falcon 91/Neilpryde RS:R EVO1 6.7/Select SL7 Gold 31 combination. Suddenly I was faster than most bigger combinations, strange...

But I always wonder, would a bigger kit be faster (just topspeed) or not. I think if the wind is really constant a smaller board is as fast or even faster... But those small gusts make a bigger board go faster. So last saturday the wind would have been theoretically quite steady.

I am happy just having 3 'small' boards so I haven't to make that choise (big or small). But in lightwind the wrong gear, or slalomgear is making quite a difference in speed. And you can't do anything about it.

Cheers,

Erik
