Spleene Rip 140x44 or 145x44. At 108 kg., I don't think you should ride anything smaller than a 140. Anything smaller will be fast and jump high as you will have to be lit to ride it.

This is my same understanding. But apparently I doesn't have idea about what he wants...

BTW If you are in gusty conditions you can't use kite as huge as toby (and tiny boards).

I suggest you something like Cabrinha xcaliber or Axis Limited. I'm pretty light (62) and i used the smallest size... So you can gofor the biggest i guess.

Other flat, freeride boards can work too but i like boards with channels. I really like the feelings.

Yeh good point, but he did say Huge pop. I agree if it is old school air then something that can be ridden fast and translate that into air.

Monk maybe.

Just bought a cheap 2012 Shinn the Player 137×43cm, stiffer than the Monk and less rocker than the Supershinn, so hope it will do me well together with my Ss Glide 149x48.
:D
