misty or zepplin?

Hi I ride a Jarvis and was thinking of getting a smaller board. What's the difference between a zepplin and a misty besides graffics? Would these boards be so small that you'd have to be constantly VERY powered? I'm 200lbs and like to ride fairly powered.

As far as I know is the only difference is the graphics. When you look at SS' site the size is exact the same.

With my weight 72Kg, it's party time quick enough, but I defenitely need a second board as "light-wind-board"

You'd have to be real powered, they are the same board and they ride small. At 200 lbs you should ride the Drake, it feels alot smaller than the Jarvis .....sticks to the water and is much smoother when really powered.

the boards are the same but the space between the footstraps is a little bit wider on the zeppelin (or misty?)

This is to make sure women feel more comfortable on a misty.
