I sailed at my "local" spot somewhere between Göteborg and Varberg...

The 69 is more of a riding board than a board made for control in blown out conditions. Still rode it for the most of tuesdays 4.0 and 3.5 sessions though and once on the wave it's very good. The 69 has quite thick rails to despite quite short length hold up for a sailor pushing the front rails. So maybe it will handle a bigger guy quite well. Interestingly, I don't think the large amounts of rocker hurt the early planing noticeably.

Maybe some of the Starboard riders bring one to the Klitmöller WC event so you can have a look.
