I weigh more than you do, easily. The Ride 45 actually feels a little big to me; little shorter, say 120, and a little narrower, say 40 with straight rails, might be perfect...early bird2 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:45 pmKamikuza , my mistake , this is an Axis Ride 145/48 .Lift is not a tuttle . I have no clue what is the wing size and don't know how to measure it . I don't feel this board is small , I only wanted to know what would do a bigger board in light air and what people are using for their weight .
My kites : Edge V9 , 7 , 10 , 13 . North Neo 12 and HL 12 UL . I'm currently waiting for a North Juice 15 which should help 8 to 15 knots instead of the Neo 12 . I also have an R1V2 19 but can't use it for the moment , no beach yet .
What is your weight ?
Board size for foiling is completely a individual each his own thing once again some prefer very small boards some prefer larger.What you want to do and your weight are certainly players in decision.Personally being a big rider and longtime surfer I prefer a surfboard surf style foilboard as my board are dual purpose as I foil on them and if I want to and waves are pumping I just slap my future fins in the boxes in and Im regular surfkiting,I run a 5'11' round pin with dual chinook boxes and future thruster configued boxes in my boards.I really like my set up for myself for foilfreeriding in waves and general cruising with mhl170 wing can't beat it for a larger rider.Your going to get all sorts of opinions on board sizes,rightfully so,but being a big rider like yourself i would definitely have a bit bigger board as I ride mine in 10mph to 35plus no problem,ultimately its whatever works for you,thats whats amazing about kite and kite foiling in general is the huge options on riding vehicles and kite gear combos just plethora of options out there.early bird2 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 19, 2018 12:25 pmHi ! I begun hydrofoiling lately and I always wondered how it would be to have a bigger board for light wind , I'm 220 pounds all wet and I currently use an Axis Ride 145/48 with 2013 Lift foil . So my question is : What is considered to be a small or big board for Hydrofoiling . Is a 148 considered big ? Would a very floaty board be of big help in light air or lulls ? thinking 8 to 15 knots . I'm always onshore winds here , shallow water , so to get out is quite a good and tiring bodydrag .
