Hi jack,
Sorry for the delay in replying.
I've been quite busy the last couple of days.
I'm going to guess that you have located a couple of 2006 Flare boards that you are interested in.
The Flare 96 might be OK, but why do you want a freestyle board at this stage of your
skill development?
The Flare 104 is a "big boys" freestyle board, and while it could possibly work for you, I suspect it would not be a good match.
If you have strong winds alot (> 20 knots) then I'd suggest keeping your 88 liter wave board.
For 12 knots and up a 90-96 liter Starboard Trance, or a Carve 90 or Futura 90-100 liter would seem better than the Flares.
The reason that the price on the Flare boards is low is that they are not that good as an "all around" board, but then they were designed as dedicated freestyle boards.
Hope this helps,
