Hello US3,

please help me to make a choice! Which board will be better for early planing is133 or is144? The difference in volume is not so big and I can see that all guys are using 133 for big board,not the 144. Does it means it is really better for light conditions with 9.0 sail?
Thank You very much

Sorry but I have never really tried out the 144. I think the 9.0 fits very well on the 133 so I might go with that. The 144 also goes quite well from what I can see. A guy was using it in Korea and was up and plaining very early.

Hi Kevin,

does it mean that you would suggest also 133/9,0 combo for a rider of 100-105 kg or 144/9.5 NP RS would be better for light wind slalom racing?

Hi there,

Well I think the 144 is very similar to the 133 but with more volume. I cant say for sure but I think the 144 is a fast board. It is designed off the 133 so I am sure that it is fast.
