I'm interested in getting the Firewire Evo Helium Kite Surfboard however unsure what size to get, 5 1 or 5 3. I weigh approx 83kg dry without gear and want to use it generally from 15 to 25 knots. Normally ride in Victoria. Anyone got advice on which size to go for?

I'm about 85kg and have the 5'1. Absolutely no problems with the size for me, best board for knee - head and half waves I've ever had by far. Riding 6 and 9m neo from 18-30kn

Yeah, I'd say the 5'1 is best for you.

I'm 97kgs and ride the 5'3 in those winds

Good luck with that, I looked for 18 months for a second hand one to no avail. Got impatient when someone on here said they had stopped shipping them to Oz and bit the bullet.

^^ Same
Waited, waited, searched & searched, didn't find that unicorn.

Gave up, bought new.

I do not regret it
