I need advice: I'm looking to buy foil and board. Currently I use Slingshot foil with old Starboard Carve for foiling. Want some upgrade. I'm 200 lbs (90 kg) guy. Considering Fanatic foil and Falcon TE 136. I also want to use that board for recreational light wind sailing. No racing. Is that right choice or you would suggest Gecko?
I would actually consider the Falcon Light Wind for foiling too - our most popular board with riders and customers for foiling. Otherwise the 136 is also good, or the Gecko, Gecko obviously easier but less performance.
What you mean by "Gecko obviously easier but less performance." Easier easier to get on foil?
Gecko is an easier board to windsurf and foil with. Getting up onto the foil, obviously the bigger Falcons are better as the get going earlier due to more lift. But more technical to ride then, in both foil and ws modes?
Thank you for explanation Craig!
Ordered Falcon TE 136 and Flow H9.
I always wanted to boarding. So I retired at age 65, and I weight 190lbs. I like the overall slim look of this board. It’s sturdy, and I feel like a lighter boarder when I’m using this board.
