looking for a waveboard for lighter winds. can`t choose between the 6`1`` skate and 6`2`` quad. i`m 80kg and 186cm, would like to ride shoulder high to head high waves in <12m/s (20-25knots) winds. i have a 5`5`` for stronger winds and waves.

kinda thinking more of the skate, since it looks a bit more lively, or am i wrong? anybody could comment on theese two boards?

I have a 5'10" quad. Really good for lightwind. When the wind is stronger it is a little unstable cos of its width. Very easy to gybe and a truly upwindmachine ( Iam 75kg,1,80m).

Skate is more gunner! No so good in lightwind and small waves but better in higher waves and stronger winds, no doubths!
