Board size

Postby Geo199 » Fri Jun 20, 2008 8:44 am

Hi to everyone..
I am into buying a new board (Cabrinha Custom) and i am pretty confused on the size..
I weight about 78 kilos and i am 1.83 cm. I ride in Greece in choppy waters..
The thing is that i come from Wakeboard since 2000 so i am in a preety good level.
Do i need to buy the 133x39 or the 138x41,5
Waiting for some help here...

Hey, depends on your level, if you are a beginner, big boards are nice to play around in most conditions, but as you get better it feels big and heavy. If you are a bit more advances, for your weight id say get the smaller one, in choppy water it might be better, don't bounce around too much.
