Freestyle board volume appr.. Bodyweight (kg = Liters) + 15 liters = board volume
I am 85 i use the (85 +15 = 100) 98 liter baord
Try it with a shorter fin (we use the choco fins 16cm)

Good luck

Ya I agree with Helmer that the 98 would be the best fit for you.

Thanks a lot guys for advices. Im still a little bit worried of the fact that most time I surf on the lake with gusty not constant wind. Any way I take the 98 then. I didn't loose 15kg to stay on 110 l boat.
grtz!

Hi Again
I am 190 cm an 83 kg add a long 5/3mm steamer.
I can uphaul a 5,6 m sail on the Flare 98 and i tack without problems.
Go for the 98L Flare (2010 0r 2009) start with the std. fin and then try it with the 16cm Choco fin and use the Rails. It is just magic.
Cheers
Helmer
