Anyone have advice on uphauling the Wizard 125. The Dialer is relatively easy as you can put your front foot ahead of the mast. Never seem to have enough sail to water start.

we have both....I'm 210 and can uphaul the 125 OK with some missteps in the chop but find it easier to use the 150l especially when its windy. and my 190lb son in law uses the 125l so he grabs it first. ts fine either way. I think you'll enjoy the 125. especially if you are under 200!

I’m 200lbs. I can struggle with the 145 if the swells/chop are big.
More questions:
Does the nose on the 125 bury if you touch down in a jibe:
Is there that much performance increase with the “no nose” board?

You might want to drop by the leur-Jensen launch some afternoon, there are a number of sailors who foil out of there on the wizards. You could quiz them. Tony L. Foils out of there also. Saw him yesterday around 4:00pm
