Another sail to look at is the HSM no cam Superfly.

Personally I foil with HSM QU4Ds rigged very tight (they do this well). But for very light wind I prefer cams since they seem to glide much furth ...

The 76 is lifting ok if big swell and you have speed.
For waves/swell, the swell speed is around 10-16 knots in 20-25 knots, hence don't need a fast wing but one that lifts and does not overtake the ...

Another factor I keep bashing on is that 30kts setup can still rocket upwind and through lulls, a speed sailing specific slalom setup has nowhere near that kind of VMG potential.

OES seems like the only ones making that size wave board as a regular thing.

I'm not sure that you'll gain what you want without losing what you have with the 114 thoug ...

I had totally forgotten about the Exocet X-wave 129, worth a look and a lot cheaper than a custom.

Could wind speeds affect this?
Certainly, in 12 to 20, most windsurfers cannot maintain speed thru jibes at the lower end, yet go faster in the upper end,

And in 5kts a race board is faster, wha ...

I guess I'm the sort who sees the appeal in trying everything. Plus I spent a lot of time in the exact conditions the OP describes.

I doubt I'd foil if I liked in SF, Maui or possibly even the Gorg ...

Guys I sail with are hitting quite a bit faster numbers with the 76cm than you're seeing Dlee. I just picked one up to replace my H2 so perhaps I'll finally bother to try for some speed on the foil.
