If you can find a 42-44 cm wide board (135-140 cm length), that would be even better.
I'm about 82kg and have a 135x42 Shinn Monk - wouldn't change it for any other TT. Use it in everything from 15 to 35 knots, never lose control. Eats chop, magic carpet ride, turns great, no spray in the face - can't fault it. Very kind to my old man knees too.andre_kite wrote: ↑Mon Jun 26, 2017 9:55 pmThanks for the answers!
I found some rare guides on internet about it:
Monk the One (http://billykite.be/wp-content/uploads/ ... -board.jpg)
131x40 70 to 80kg
133x41 75 to 85kg
135x42 85 to 95kg
North (Select or Xride -https://www.northkiteboarding.com/produ ... ps/select/)
132x39 55 to 75kg
135x40 70 to 85kg
138x41 75 to 90kg
Last year I tried a Cabrinha Spectrum 148x44 and I kinda found it too big, even at the end of the evening at Cumbuco in October (Brasil/Ceará/Fortaleza), when you can see some 10, 11 and 12m kites. That's the only pratical referente I got about big boards. So, when you guygs say 44, I think I may say that's too big. (I know that can be totally false, cause I'm still a newbie).
However, looking at the numbers above, I'm afraid of using a big board that picks up too much speed.
I know that a hard question and that there're a lot of variables, but each comment will help me a lot for sure.
