Hi Agrelon
I can't comment on the W58, but I have had the W53 for a while now. Although the W53 brief is not XS slalom, it does work very well in rough conditions. Last week-end I spent the day on my sonic 100/6.8m in gusty 15k to 35k with messy harbour chop. I used the W53 for the last hour and it was way smoother than the Sonic 100 accross the chop. Im 194cm and 105kg, so I would imagine that you would be good for either the W53 or W58 as dual high wind slalom or speed. The iS86 slim is 81ltrs and Im guessing that its very similar to the older iS76, the iS76 (which I used to have) was really very smooth accross rough water, but it might be a bit big for your weight???
