primarly reason is i can fit a 90cm board fits in a oversized wheeled duffel bag luggage.
i'm your exact size/weight.. but as you said.. is very individual.
my only complain about the macho pro is the way it floats in the water...is comfy. wide or narrow stance
since i frequently use kites that are poor upwind performers (peak4/clouds)... is a bummer having to literally swim back upwind when i wipe out (since the board anchors in place...and SEEMS like it wants to float upwind)
for that reason alone i'd like some thickness...some buoyancy
aand yes, (i think)@ elguapo you mean the MFC Foils? Yet, to my knowledge thehydrofoilcompany is working together with MFC, but has not produced something own?
i may have butchered the name of the foilmaker
