Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me with my packing dilemma...

I've never been to Maui before and am +90kgs.

Am I being optimistic taking a 86L Starboard quad convertible (in March) or would I be better initiating myself on a 92L.

i;ve never sailed hookipa, but i'm told the formula is a volume about one's wt. in kg for the good days, and plus 10 l for the light days. a telling detail was a m.pritchard(big guy) custom board for sale online, painted to look like stock 76l board, but reported to be 90l. i'd say go 92 to be sure you can get out.
