The Wipika Switcher 175 is perfect for you as a starter board and in the long term as your lightwind board. If you are allready started with jumps etc, The Mystery 140 will be the perfect board for you, but not for light winds.
Switcher 160 is for small people only (girls), and the Switcher 186 for BIG people only (more than 100kg) Some would say real men only!

You are right John - except that the 160 is not for small people !
You can plane earlier on the 160 than the 175 !!!
I've used both a lot.
The 160 has a much flatter rocker line (shorter TT's has to be flat to work), and is really fast and early planing.
The 175 is easier to sail, as the more pronounced rocker makes the board the perfect jibe/trick machine - 100% in balance, and the fins never catches like it can on the 160.

So I've used the 160 as my lightwind board - excellent !
But the 175 is just as good because of its pleasant behaviour IMO.
