Default formula hwr or lwr

First of all, congratulations for being an escential part of the future of windsurfing. I sold my formula 160 and I want to buy one of the 2010 formula models and I have two doubts:
1) After analizeing the information available at http://www.star-board.com/2010/produ...rd_formula.php there are two boards to choose, I need to know what a medium weight raider means in kg aprox. If I knew the weight of what the formula 2010 web page refers as a midium weight rider, It would be easier for me to choose the correct board.
2) I see ilogical that the that the LWR, which is intended for medium to light riders, has more volume (168) than the HWR (162) which is intended to heavy weight riders. I´m not a designer, but perhaps there is an error in the information provided in the formula 2010 web page because I believed that more volume is intended for a heavier rider and viceversa.
I´ll be waiting for your reply,

I believe, though this may not be the case for SB, that other windsurfing companies such as Neilpryde and JP use 80kg as their 'average' reference. This puts me way under, infact at my weight I really do wonder how using a formula board would be...

Sorry Guys but I have not used any of the formula boards so I cannot give any feedback on this. Maybe next time I am in Thailand I will hop on one. I almost did last year but for me it takes getting alot of stuff to get back on the formula bandwagon.

I don’t know much about windsurfing except that it is a surface water sport where one uses a board with a rig attached. From the postings I realized that there are several types of boards, some specially formulated with different weights, and one has to select the right one when starting out.

Without going through all the reasons, just get the HWR. It is that simple.
