Why such a big board? anything will float, go for a small waveboard with LOTS of V. Have an old AHD Pro Wave from 1997. Briljant with a 3.7 in survival mode.

did see once a heavy scandinavian bloke [100kg] fully sheet in,wind around 40knots plus sailed for about 400metres.at end of run the wind picked his kit up and blew it 30m towards shore.
Gruissan south of France mai 2007 between 40 & 55 knots, the best gust at 62 Knots
The little guy on Starboard had a 5 meters sail

Look at the MS, a well-known Aussie ( without is hat )









Nice time for a beach party (-:

Thats exactly where board is for and if anyone knows area they`l understand why I dont want to go super small. Wind can go from as it is in pictures to under 10 knots in literally seconds.
It would be easy (well easier) to get a board simply to cope aswell as is possible in 40k ; its harderr to get one that will then float you home if required.

Where`s the Tiga ?? Near Leucate ?? I`m here till April ; will come and fetch it if its in Leucate region.
Thanks
Floyd

One of the boards is in Belgium, the other in Britany ( West of France, not in GB )

But sometimes, you can find the same ones or 263 in Leucate's surfshops ( 4 or 5 )

Nearly all the modern kit at around 100 litres is worried about early planing and top end. (even Kode ?) My F2 Style 250 is worn out !!!

Will try and get on a RRD FSW

Thanks for replies.
I'de have to agree with you. So many modern boards are focused on early planning. But it is super difficult to get an early planning board that doesn't complain once over powered as generally the characteristics for early planing don't work so well when completely maxed out.

I think for really high wind a freestyle/wave board is the way to go, with one strap at the back. The water will be too confused anyway to allow you to simply blast and that 1 strap will make hitting jumps a breeze.

Hi Floyd, if volume matters then go for the 269 rather than 263. It is around 15 liters larger and much easier to initiate and keep planing. With all respect, the 263 is more for lighter riders and will sink at the first lull under your weight. Hi Papounet, you're about 100 Kgs as well, aren't you? What would you say?

95 Kg (-:
On sea side, until 30 Knots of wind, you can use what you want.
After.................

With big b***s, high wind, but easy speed slalom boards as
TB˛ 58 / Warp speed / Tabou 58,59 / AB+ 58,54 / Tiga Hyper X 85

Otherwise, the softer small board you can find and if slow, it's perfect...

On the ponds, except in 2 or 3 places which work's like sea,
Rock & Roll party starts before 30 Knots, jumping from crest to crest

For the Tiga boards, i think that 263 noose rocker is a bit flat.

Old plastic Tiga are known for having NO dynamic shape stability. They bend and twist in all directions, which of course affects top speed but brings this particular smooth ride. C'est le "secret de la glisse". You can rely on small models in rough conditions. Below 30 Knts as you say, other boards are more fun. When it becomes hectic I jump on my 257.

Papoune,

I have a 263 and the nose is pretty high, never a problem with sticking it into a wave. I don't know the volume for sure, but I would guess around 80-85L. The 269 is under
100. Smooth as silk in choppy water.

I don't use the board much since where I sail the wind is highly variable and I sink big time when I hit a hole or a shadow. I only think about using it when the the wind is 25+ knots, which isn't often. I weigh 79kg.
