Found it. Thanks.

Also, Bic Nova 165 or 180 for 9 year old 60lbs boys and their 135lbs teaching dad?

Hi drzone,
This is a tough question as how to answer it depends entirely on how you decide to teach your boys.
If you plan to ride on the board with them at first, (the fastest and safest way for them to learn) it would have to be the 180 liter Nova and even then I'm not sure there's enough float.
If the boys are going to sail it by themselves, right from the start, then the Nova 165 would be better for them individually.
Please take a look at the other thread here and what I've suggested about "teaching your own".
Hope to see you in Plattsburgh, which would solve this problem.

Hi Roger,

Against all doubts, I put my doughter on the Hybrid Formula with a kid rig. She immediately was able to lift the rig and start to sail, including to turn back and forth a few times.

She really enjoyed the day at the lake and we had really good time together.

I avoided to blame her at all, while encouraging her continuosly since she was doing (really) fine.

Hope that this idilliac situation will continue...

Regards to everybody.

Roberto

Hi Roberto,
Excellent!
Very glad to hear this all worked out for both you and your daughter!
Keep up the good work, and you'll be buying her a board
pretty soon.
No good deed goes unpunished....
