Hi Reuben, at your weight of 75kgs, did you ride the the 128l & if so was it ok/doable, or just too big & corky? I’m around 80kg but tall & was thinking the 128l could be good for small, weak waves. I have a lower vol board for good waves. Cheers, Tony L.

I am a 90kg rider and absolutely love my 128l raptor for beach breaks. It is super lively on the wave, yet very stable in chop. Catching waves was a bit tricky at first…was initially a bit difficult to get straight ahead drive when paddling…board kept turning…but that issue has subsided with more time on the board via positioning, footwork, stance.
Once on wave, boy is it fun…fast, super responsive.
For reference, the other primary boards in my quiver are an 8’8″ Naish Hokua x32 (quad setup) and a 9’4″ Laird Surrator.
