So DImitri - is what you're saying that the success of that ride in the video comes down to it being a smaller SUP? Like how big?
Hello markchatwin, if you are interested to surf the waves then yes a surf board will be great but in such light wind even a surf board could not work. So the 8'5" SUP was the perfect board for surfing these waves. You could go with a 9'0" SUP but that will be the biggest you want to go if you want to be able to surf the waves. Now if you don't care and just want to go back and forth then go with an 11'0" SUP or even better a race board with 3 big fins so it creates apparent wind. But once again you need to choose your gear very carefully in order to perform in these extremely light wind conditions. And of course you need to know what you are doing because it's not that easy.
