2016 Naish Monarch - Which size?

Postby Dr_Rosen » Mon Feb 29, 2016 9:36 am

Which size for 85-86 kg rider? The 134 og 136?
Today riding a 139 Best Procreator and liking the size. But some have said the 134 is the right size. Sceptical about that statement :-)

Any insight?

I think it depends a bit. The weight is only an issue if you want to ride in lighter winds. I have the 132 and weigh more than you. Note that I've always have ridden the 134 before and been super happy, but I wanted to just ride lit up now.

I pretty much think you can;t go wrong, but as I said I wanted to use it lit up for jumping sessions.

136 is very good!. fast insane pop, possibly a board thats been overlooked by riders it really preforms superbly.

I love my 136. Does everything good and the width makes it work on lighter days !

holy shit you must be putting some strain on it tho. I've ground mine on reef, land so it felt my ankles would snap and board is fine.

It's good you're not injured.Unfortunately I ended up with torn ACL and MCL. I wish I snapped the board instead.
