Well they make the Asylum in 134 x 41 which is a great board.
I'm pretty sure they'll add a 134 if there is demand although in the UK last year everyone wanted 138 and 141 Asylums !!!

What width would you like a 134 to be?

I have found that the width of a board is far more important than the lenghth. I know 42cm is the right width for me with straps @90kg


Asylum 134 is a killer fantastic board, it is so super that I don't want to imagine how not existing 134 Vision would feel like, and even if it existed I'd might got crazy it got better.

Well I have used the Vision, just once for 2 hours in lumpy high tide UK conditions.
Initial thoughts compared to the Asylum are:
It's looser, more skatey as the channels are shallower and there is no full length channel down the rail.
The rocker line and flex are basically the same.
The plan shape of the Vision is very slightly more drawn in at the tips (last 12") whereas the 12" measurement are exactly the same @ 35cm.
It hold a good edge and rockets upwind and loads up really well for big airs. It holds in really nice for hot landings too.
I'll update more after using it in the flats.

For me it's a little too stiff in the tips and with a bit too much rocker for freeriding.
It's very close to the Asylum in flex and rockerline.
I like the Misfit flex and rocker line but to get a 42cm wide Misfit you have to go to 142cm long which is getting on for QE2 proportions.
I really hope they make the Misfit in 138x42...that would be perfect.

As ever, try one out if you can, it might be THE board for you especially if you are freestyling.

So, I was considering my first boot setup.
Vision or Asylum?

Based on a little feedback here, if I want to ride it finless it sounds like the Asylum will track a little better with those tip to tip channels. ? But I've never ridden boots...or ridden a twin finless, so I don't really know.

So...180 lbs, first boot setup, which board and what size would you recommend?

Thanks! :thumb:

if you kite in a stong winds 138 Asylum for your weight will be enough, for medium to light - 141
