Sitting at around 200lbs (91kg), looking for a lightwind directional. I tought about thé Sector and other freerace boards but the lake bottomis all over the place, not interested in long pointy fins. Looking for 10is knts (with holes around 7) and choppy 15-18 knots. I prefer a surf over à race.

I have ridden the Dialer and Kneeswacker, but own neither. If you want a 10 knot low end at your weight you will need the Kneeswacker I think. As the wind picks up the Kneeswacker ican be a bit bumpy, but then again the Dialer is a bit bumpy in higher winds as well. I totally agree with wanting one of these boards over a board with huge fins, plus with either of the SS boards you will get to ride some small waves as well.

For what you seem to be looking for, I would recommend the Kneeswacker. Have never ridden the globe trotter so can't comment on that one.
