Default RE: A weight problem, which board volume to get? :S

Hi jamieedodger,

At 55kg, even the Carve 101 would definitely be a big time floater for you. With virtually no wind, you should be able to float and balance it in no sweat. If you're accurate that wind conditions are usually in the 20-30mph range, I truly think that the Carve 101 might be too much volume, especially if standing chop is a concern. Frankly, you need to ask yourself a bit more about the true wind averages. If wind averages are more realistically in the 10-15mph range, that's a whole different game, and a much higher volume board would be the call. What size sails do you anticipate using?
