Almost anything 80+ wide and 135L+ volume would work. Until my kids are out of the house, I'm using a BIC Nova, which is the heavy padded deck version of BIC Techno 160 with a center fin slot which y ...

8.9-- something 75cm or wider

Early planing is not particularly high priority for me (OP). I use the Fanatic Cross currently with 6.0-8.0, but I can tell it is a bit small for optimum use of the 8.0. The 8.0 is very compact thou ...

My beloved Fanatic Cross 120 (116L) is now 15 years old and doing very fine for my conditions, but starting to think about the next one. It very commonly gets used in 6.0 conditions because of fluky ...
