Hello everyone, what do you think here, I already have a SB WP 8.10 carbon and have seen a SB pro 9.0 XL 2018 in the sale. Could it be a replacement for WP, or probably next to it? I weight 91kg

I guess there is limited experience with the XL to give you a perspective... For what it is worth I weigh 85Kgs and have surfed my friend's 8'5 Pro and think it is an amazing board! It was almost like surfing on a rail and so easy to throw around. Interestingly, not sure if it is the shape but it did feel a touch corky even compared to boards I own that have a touch more volume. The other consideration is that there is a full redesign for 2019 which makes each board a couple inches shorter, has thinner rails and a channeled tail that should increase drive. If I were to consider one, I would personally be going for 2019 model. Another of my friend's picked up an 2019 8'3 but I haven't had a chance to surf it yet.
