That was my main concern before I put the first 55cm into water. No problems with 55. A fat rail with proper design of the edge pretends a hard catching or crash stops and it helps to go upwind very smooth through the chop.
BTW: A lot depends of length of the drift. I reckon 60cm width would easily work with a 100cm plus drifts.
More tests under way
I am going to test a 60cm next weekend.

Affraid that Formula Windsurfing riders count it in different way paying 1000$ ish for a single blade.
And if that's really the reason for the rule, then there should be an Open-Class to
promote More and better technology ; otherwise there just promoting stagnation
for the sport.
It is amazing, interesting and even shocking that the brand new revolutionary kite racing class established just couple years ago might be received now like the RSX class just because of the foil
More seriously - let's wait for further developments. The foilboarding is just born comparing to the Formula Kite. No class rules, no international events (except one worlds in 2012), no national cups, few riders and even less foils on the market, not too much knowledge, no experience etc.
