what boards should i be looking to buy.

Postby xxchris060 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 6:36 pm

I have a best float 135 that is and 05 or 06 model. I use that the most out of all my boards. I weigh 215lbs and ride in mostly flat to chop water. I need a good all around board that is good in high winds and low.
I also have a pro 124 that i am going to sell and a pro 130 that i may sell as well For light wind i have a nolibe skim and a surfboard that i will keep.

i am looking for an all around board. for light to high winds. I was thinking of the 666 132x44.. But there are soo many other boards out there. and i cannot really try anything before i buy.

Hey Chris,
At 215lbs I would look for something larger than a 132cm board. That will work for you in high winds only.
I would suggest either the 138 or 142 Underground FLX. Awesome boards for flat water and chop. The 666 is a good board but the 135 is 48cm's wide and that won't be much fun in high winds.
Also take a look at the CrazyFly Raptor Pro 137x41. A very good all-around board in my opinion.
Hope this helps!
