Big Guy foil board size?
« on: September 26, 2017, 06:31:40 PM »
Hey everyone...

long time lurker here. definitely interested in getting a foil board. Currently riding a 10'6 by 32ish SUP atx for surf. Im wondering what boards bigger guys are riding when foiling. Im 6'5 270.  Ive been surfing for 20 + years and started supping a couple of months ago on a 12 ft board and already stepped down....

Im right thinking 9 or 9'6 in a simmonsy type shape and then putting a deep tuttle in.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

get the smallest board that will float you and feel stable on.  once flying the foil, the bigger boards will hold you back.
