I weigh about the same as you and I ride the '07 99 flare alot. This board is very good for learning the basics as I am curently doing that. I would say go for it, good price, good board. The only thing that might be just a little bit big for your weight. I say this because I find that 90ltr boards pop easier. But good thing about this board is that it will get you going in fairly light wind, especially if you have larger sails to complement it. This is realy good because once you start going for some tricks and start getting close to landing them, you're going to want to sail as much as possible untill you get it down I suggest geting some after market freestlye fins to make life sweeter

go for it!

Hi wannabe-freestyler,
the 104 is quite ok. Has a wide nose and will help you to slide backwards. The size is not bigger than written. Itīs a good choice for lightwind, like johnthesailorman mentioned already. But you are looking for a lightwindchoice. Porto Pollo has a lot of flat water. So you can handle the board as well in stronger wind. If it gets strong, you would need a freestyler sized in between 85 and 90 liters. Fintuning (shorter fin) can help a lot. Itīs US-Box finsystem in this board and you will find a lot of choices (20 cm).

Go for it,
Chris
