I use a foilboard in light winds ; principal use is to be compfortable in the messy water surface I have when 15-18 knots with a 9m LEI or 12m foilkite ; riding in lower winds like 10-15 knots with my 12m or 15m foilkite would be a bonus but it is not my first wish list.

Given your light weight I recon you could get away with a 140. The 140 rides like a playful smooth carvable tt for chop and boosting. The 150 can be set up mutant mode and is a better solution for powered tt style wave riding.

Ps I'm 77kg. When I rode the 140 I was 82kg it was 15-18 knots on a 15m speed 3. Would have been a 2012,2013 model

ok I go for the 140cm I found.... Great and thanks
I Would like to protect it with a twin type bag. Can one of you tell me what would be the appropriate dimension wrt its high concave ? would a 1.35*40 bag suit or do I need absolutely 140+ ?

The concave is side to side and - including the concave - the board is 40cm wide (ie, 42ish if flattened).

The board is 140cm long, would be slightly longer if the rocker was flattened.

Hope this helps!

Mine is 2015 and is not wood, I don't think, but it is pretty sturdy.
Pretty sure both 2012 and 2015 Makos are wood core.
