Default RE: Heavyweights Waveboard

Right. Guest, hold your breath until aug 15 and we will tell you everything about the new big wave board. Definitely no compromises...

A note on volume relative weight: It seems that bigger sailors are often on relatively smaller boards and vice versa. I'm not 100% sure why, but since it applies to amateurs and pros alike, I think its its a kind of physical fact (probably something to do with planing area and such things). But even if you just compare volumes, it is the ratio of the volume of the board and the weight of you and your gear (say 20 kg). A 100l board for you (110 kg?) would mean a ratio of 100/130=0,77 which equate me (70kg) riding a 70 liter board (which actually is a good all round size for me which works in pretty light winds too).
