Kiri is 60kg and he uses the 88 flare in all conditions. mostky with 5.3 echo down to 3.7 manic.
The 5.3 will be a good size on the flare 88 but I not sure that it will handle the 6.0 that good.
I have been in podersdorf two years ago. but the wind wasn't that good. during that time I was on the flare 99 2006 and it was great board for that conditions..
Both the 2008 flare 88 and 99 are speciale. the 99 doesn't feel that big. but doesn't spin as fast as the 88 but the 99 is very well balance and it sure is a great board..
Get the 88 flare on a 18 cm fin and you will like it, even the 99 flare boards you can use a 18cm on it.. but a 20cm will also be fine.
