The 169 sure is peachy but if you are still using the 'bungee ' heel straps then be carefull as they can be quite dangerous... not so bad on flat stuff as I see you get to enjoy from your pix... but they are very stretchy and you can come out of the straps and get caught up as they twist around your heels... so much so you can't hardly get out andthe board is stuck to you.. this is very hectic in waves.
The 169 comes into its own once you have some sort of binding, sandal or full, attached... you can then set the heel further back and get a much better edge in.
PS. your lonely irish spot looks great, hope I can make it over sometime.
