Starboard Kode - which size to buy for 86kg surfer?
19 August '10 | 7:25am

regarding to your test of freewave boards 09 I have a question.

I am buying a new Starboard Kode but am not sure which size to buy, 80l or 86l?

I have 86kg and average knowledge of windsurfing (waterstart, planning, jibe,...). At the moment I have a JP FSW 107l board which is too big when the wind gets stroger but am planning to keep it for "lighter" winds.

The new Kode I want to use mainly for highwind freeriding and some samaller wave sailing (in future I want to do more wave sailing). Am not doing freestyle.

Is there a big difference when the 80l and 86l board starts plannng (2,5cm difference in width)?

thanks for your advice!
