Default Flare 99 or 111


Some help from the freestylers please!

I'm seriously obsessed with vulcanolgy & trying spocks but v badly! Going for a flare but not sure which size. I'm 78kg & want a dedicated freestyle board for F4-5. (I've got RRD 95/78 FSW's for stronger winds)

99 would seem ideal but wondered if 111 would give more planing time in marginal conditions (often found in my home waters!!!)?

Am I right that the dimensions for 111 are same as 99 (seems like a very good idea)?

26cm fin on 111 does sound big for a freestyle board but I'm no expert! Does it cope well with smalller freestyle fins?

(thought about rrd twintip but like idea of 'gutters' on Flare to save ankles - also nearly 200 quid cheaper than rrd!)

Thanks v much for your help
