Default Flare 88 or 98?

Hi,

I'm a 60kg rider looking for a board to perform modern freestyle tricks. Should I buy the 88l flare or the larger board going by my weight?
I currently ride a 100l pure freestyle board and I can't find a small freestyle board to demo here in Ireland. Just wanna be sure on what size would suit me better before I spend money on a new board.

Cheers,

Danny

Hi Danny,
I would recommend you the 88 and guees you have a lot of wind at your spots!
Whatīs your biggest sailsize you are using in genaeral on freestyle boards?
Kiri, Sarah-Quita and even Taty are using 88 a lot.

Best,
Chris

Cheers Chris,

My biggest sail is a 5.7 and wouldn't normally go bigger than a 6.3 or so. Most days I'll be out on smaller sails anyway, 4.7 quite a lot.
