Forget about volumes or width, a fellow windsurfing friend has the Atom 100 and is 75kg and says it is perfect for him. Unless she is planning on using sails bigger than 7m then the 100 would be my...

Hi Andy, if you've seen one on the beach then maybe you could ask the owner if you could have a go if they are reluctant try lending them your board and ask them to compare the two.
