View Full Version : Q: Hypersonic 125 under 85Kg?

24th July 2007, 04:20 PM
Condition: Wind 1-2, Sea 1 (calm), (no waterstart)
Equipment: Starboard Hypersonic 125, 7.3 Slalom Hi-Tech Sails
Question: With this board, under this condition, will it manage to float with 100% positive buoyancy, thus making posible an uphaul?

You did not tell me your weight?

Sorry.. You can uphaul it yes. It will be unstable and hard to do but yes you will be able to do it.

Hope this helps.

Im certainly no kp but Im 80kg and I have lots of tow with a 125ltr hs and big sails.
I find it easy to uphaul an 8.5 np rs and just slightly harder to uphaul a 10.6 rs.
The 10.6 is a load to hold up while slogging in no wind but the board floats it with no problem. Very stable.

Hope this helps.
