Yes it's worth a good -5L or so, but easier to uphaul or tack.

Still I'd like a manufacturer other than Horue to make one that floats. Especially with a big surf wing.

Based on my experience maximum sail size for foiling is a function of board width and sailor weight with heavier sailors being able to rig bigger for a given width.

My 85L wave board has a domed deck so there's still some volume out back but more concentrated in the middle. With thinner rails it can dig into the water and turn well controlling bouncing yet the t ...

Any board I can uphaul I will foil with.

I've sailed both ends of the Gorge, it's nothing like here in terms of technical challenge having far more consistent and favorable conditions which is why ...

We sail in very different places. Comparatively the Gorge isn't as difficult or dangerous so long as there isn't a barge coming (but we have whale watching boats doing +30kts and far more marine traff ...

Unfortunately the biggest they make is 108L.

Well I CAN'T uphaul 85 or even 95L and slogging ankle deep is likewise not a strong suit so let's ignore that for the moment and focus on the theoretical effects of volume distribution on static stabi ...

I'm 180-185 but always wearing quite a lot of gear (cold water here).

I have two board of very similar volume (based on use, one has no numbers) and similar length.
One is narrower, flat decked with very sharp boxy parallel rails
The other is wider with a domed deck, ...

My go-to foil board is 230cm, the next will be 210cm. Both are also used as general bump and jump/FSW boards. I have no interest in foil specific boards or GPS speeds/racing. I just want to carve, on ...
