6ft or bigger depending on your weight.
Stonker has some really cheep prices on their directionals. Could be worth it.

Hi Pedro, I weigh 75 ks and use a 7' (210 cm) Naish Skypirate with a 12m Mastair in 6-10, can even get pretty well powered at times, great stuff.
Whatever you get remember width is more important than length (anything around 50 cm is ok) a bit of volume helps in the lulls too.
Have fun
Jo

I use a 6ft underground directional but it's a bit small for true lightwind sailing...

Best to get a board between 6 or 7 foot but with width and a bit more volume... A converted surfboard doesn't go too badly.. get a minimal with not much rocker.... put some footstraps on it and it goes well....

shit loads of bouyancy....

BLOWN AWAY :smile:
