Maybe it is not Roberto only strapped surfboardmarkchatwin wrote: Roberto's is a 44cm wide which is 17.3" wide which doesn't seem too wide to me. Seems like you'd need a lot of power to keep that baby afloat. It's about 5'8" on the length but I'm sure as the speed increases it would rock.
Any thoughts on surfboard size?
I have a similar board like Roberto when the wind is strong for my 2011 10/8 or 2010 6 Rebel
"The Kontact 2010 is Tri-fin pintail 5'9" long and 16 3/4" wide"
I mostly ride the 2011 Whip 5'7" x 18.6 Quad with my 2011 12 Rebel or Riot XR2 LW 19 and we both weigh exact same
I also have a 3rd board twin-fin (14cm) 3 straps 2011 North Freerace 5'3" x 18.6" (real wide square tail)
That one goes upwind higher ,faster and in one knot less wind than my Whip (less drag from less fins) +very flat rocker
Real "skatey" feel to turn on a dime in smaller waves
It is 17" wide one foot off the tail and at the very back it is 13 3/4"wide
So that is what i like to use in salty density ocean water
So i think in a fresh water lake the additional buoyancy (thickness and width) may be to your advantage
