220lbs 6'4"

I ride:

6'8" Don Johnson mini gun

or

6' Doc Lausch

Both brilliant boards.

Quite different to kite company boards. Nice rocker that makes them work in the waves.

Style: Strapless surfing with a kite.

190lb Naish Skater 4'8'' Well I have another few boards, but that is the one I have ridden the most lately.
What are you trying to do on the board?

90kg and riding a Wainman Surf 6.1 (straped or strapless) in cleaner surf , or a custom 5.10x19 (also straped or strapless, depending on sea/chop state) for stronger winds , or a quad Surftech Stretch 6.1 normal surfboard (purely strapless) in winds from 14 up to 25knots.
By far the best fun i have is with the strapless Surftech which i have for almost 2 years now and it's holding up more than fine. :thumb:
For your specs i'd say go with a normal surfboard (strapless) in something around 6.0 - 6.2. :bye:

Hi, I'm 1,81m tall and at 93Kgs I ride a RRD WaveOff 5'6'' thruster.
I thought it was small for me but I ride it strapless and without the central fin in light wind: I can stay upwind in 10kn with my RRD Obsession 13.5m and when the wind nukes I use it with straps and my Obsession 9m.
