Naish Monarch 2017 size

Postby slakterhouse » Wed May 30, 2018 6:54 pm


What size would you guys recommend for the naish monarch 2017 on a 72-75kg rider?
I know that it's a very fast board with low flex, so im currently thinking of the 135 cm x 41,5 cm.

Would the 132 cm x 41 cm limit me to very strong wind days, or would i be able to ride it on a 16 knot day?

I would suggest the 132. I have your weight and rode the 2016 and 2017 Monarch in that size. Rode it with 11m downwards, 16 knots no problems. (This season I ride the Motion also in 41cm width). Have a look at the Monarch 2018 review by REAL on YouTube. He says it rides bigger than its nominal size and recommends to go one size down (probably compared to standard shaped freeride board with narrower tips and more rocker like a Naish Motion)
