Hi,
Just wondering what would be a good wave board to start with. In NSW so it will be 12-18 knot days.
Fairly experienced on flatwater with 130ltr + boards, but never tried a small board or gone in the waves and reckon its about time to give it a go. I weigh in at 75kg.
Thanks.

FSW

forget wave boards just yet unless it will be plenty windy and you sail often - rather go a FSW to get used to the harder to get planing, harder to get out thru waves etc feel, but it will turn better and get you going along waves a bit.

Start with a 90-100L FSW on flatwater and when that is easy, then try a spot with cross to cross on winds and say waist hi waves

A season on that, then a quad that is 10L about your body weight for 20kn days.

Thanks Mark. Appreciate the advice.

Thought I'd share a link on what I found when doing a search on what FSW is.

I agree with Mark I would recommend a FSW from JP Fanatic or RRD at just over 90l for your weight.
