Yes, you can always keep them stuck to the water (in the good sense) whenever you need. By the way Tiga 259, 263, 257 & 268 are in the 80/90 liters range. All are excellent shapes in high wind although 263/268 are freeride/slalom oriented and 257/259 are wave/frewave. If you want something closer to 100 liters, the 269 is of the same stuff. Adversely the sandwich epoxy FreeCarve 57/61 have much more "pop" but are also much harder to control in rough conditions. Strap twisting on old Tiga is annoying indeed, but elliptic toothed washers combined with the monopad normally fix it.
