What about these big wide speedboards? I always questioned myself why these boards get produced. There are 3 things I imagened the wider speedboards could work out better than normal speedboards:
- Low wind, below 18kn of wind regular speedboards are not handy even for me with 80kg bodyweight.
- For heavyweight windsurfers, there are always some places without any wind. Small speedboards with 65liters volume are not the easiest to handle when your weight is 100kg+
- Beginning speedsurfers, the small speedboards give to less rider feedback for beginning speedsurfers. A bigger board gives more rider feedback.
