Would the 4'8 be suitable for an 88kg person?
I guess not...
Any experiences?

i know that many guys that are one size bigger than me (72kg) use one kitesize bigger and one boardsize bigger.

how long is 4'8" exactly (i'm metric) ?
i wouldn't go smaller than 147cm.
above that, you should be able to ride the board without problems -> perhaps you need more power, depending on the shape.

which mutant are you talking about? the naish?

I'm 105kg, and I was riding the Naish Mutant 4'11" with no problems. Something a bit bigger may have been nicer in very light winds, but its really down to just getting used to want ever board you decide to use.

Hi, I'm riding the new mutant 4'8'' and I'm about 78 Kg, well it is great you can ride it in all wind condition and with sails that generate big progressive power like x2 you need it to go slower when oversailed into blasts for example. because it is the more tin board I've never see (exept wakeboards).
Bye tux
