Hello all!

I am thinking of buying a 92 liter JP freestyle-wave board. What do you think would be the optimal two-sail quiver to use with this board? I weigh around 160 pounds. My plan is to use this gear to sail in different spots in the Bay Area.

Many thanks in advance!

5.8 & 4.7


top for this board ummmmmmm 6.2 6.0

bottom 4.5

would get Ezzys in the closest to that, have a lot of range

I'm 180, my bread and butter is a 5.5 Ezzy on a 102 board. I very rarely use my 6.3 my 4.7 sees water pretty much only in the spring so I would say 5.3, 4.5, a third sail would be optimal though, I would get a nice 5.0, and 2 used sails (5.8 and 4.2)

2 gears for your car.
2 gears for your bicycle.
You want that?
Your board handles 4.5 thru 6 meters, but with a smaller sail and fin, you can have fun in 30-35mph NW spring winds at Penninsula and stick.

I would think at 160 I would want 5.2 and 4.5 or 5.0 and 4.2... probably leaning toward the latter. Plan on using the 5.0 or 5.2 75% of the time though.

U2 would be right if we were talking about Berkeley.

If it was me, at 150 lbs., same board, I'd go 6.2, 5.5, 5.0, 4.5, 4.0, and 3 fins, stock 27 FSW, one 34 pointer blade, and one 21 pure wave.
OTOH, I"m a gearhead, after shortboarding here since '83.

LeeD, can you check your PM. I missed your last message and don't have an email for you. I want your help on building some boards.

I sailed almost 150 days last year and never wanted anything bigger than my 5.6 at 170lbs. You can pass on the days lighter than that because even if you miss rare 15kt days, you're sailing a ton.

If you're location bound to Berkeley, something like a 5.8 or 6 would probably be nice to have.

I lived/worked there, East Bay, sailed most of those spots, Berzkly a lot, matter of convience and lack of ability

but much perferred the Delta,

I was on a 6.0 most of the time, rare under 5.0
