MITSU?? You lost me there.

"know those sites"..... Very Happy Very Happy
I gotta laugh. MITSU knows Berkeley, having sailed there at least 150 days a year since 1994.

Wow... You really know those sites! Typically, what month does Berkeley and Pt Isabel turn on?

Much of your issue may be related to sensor location and "precision vs. accuracy".

Thx. Appreciate the info -- especially on fins!

My take, go big. I'm no lightweight....so it all scales up a bit for me.
I used to wavesail Maui on 80-90ltrs, but find east bay takes a little mo ...

Thanks for all the info! About five years ago I demoed an Mistral Syncro around 105-110 liters. I only had it for a day and it was a pretty solid day. Despite that, I did notice quicker planing. Howe ...

Point: does any of know so precisely what the ambient wind speed is on the water at our sail that we can compare 18-19 to 20 mph with any validity? Over the internet?
Which is why I noted the locatio ...

IF you actually read my post, you'll find that I recommend both a bigger board AND a bigger sail. 6.3 is too small for normal good Berkeley days, unless you weigh 150 and can pump with the best.

more float will help you at berkeley but know that you need to consider the lull when rigging there. If the sensor is reading average 20 but the lull is 15 your probably not gonna plane. If the sens ...

You'd gain maybe 1.5 mph windspeed on the bottom end to keep and get you planing. More important, you gain the confidence that when the winds do die to 2 mph, you can uphaul and slog home easily.

Currently sail old freeride board (Bic Veloce 101 ltr, 278 cm) with 5.4 and 6.3 sails. I do most of my sailing these days in Berkeley (don't have the free time I once had to sail other sites around t ...
