Good discussions so far!

Always keep in mind that the PWA follows the 63 rules, what means that every rider is allowed to register 6 sail sizes and three board sizes at the first event of the season.

With the chosen equipment you have to cover almost all conditions. If you register a too large light wind board it can limit you light wind performance in a bit "stronger lightwind".

Imagine, there is an event with 6 eliminations. One is really light at the limit with 6-10 knots and all other races take place in solid 11 - 17 knots. A 90 cm wide tanker would probably limit the performance. Most of the medium sized boards are 66 to 72 cm wide. Perhaps the big riders would need to risk to register a bigger sized medium board like the iSonic 110 and go for a bigger gap to the smallest one. If you want to be competitive in high wind conditions at Fuerte you at least need the 90 or 87.
