Hi Mark.....if you have a local rep, please support them. They'll appreciate it for sure.
They should have a discount code so you can get the $9,995 deal.
My point, is I'm not going to try to have you order and use my code. They have one.
I'm on here just to help give good advice. Hope it helps.
That being said....this is a super easy decision imho if you go with the Lift E-foil or something similar.
My suggestion would be to go with the 5'6" board with 200 wing set and call it a day for your first one.
That is the most popular size by a long shot.
In the 2 years I've been selling these, doing lessons, etc., I never got a 6'2" for my school. It's just BIG.
I'm 220 lbs and no problem learning on the 5'6" and also love the 5' board.
If you are over 240 and older, then maybe the 6'2".
If you are under 200 and if it's mostly just you using the board, maybe the 5'0" board to start.
The 5'6" is perfect for both you, family, friends and kids. It's amazing how much fun kids have on these and how easy it is for lighter riders to learn.
Then....if you do get a 2nd one, you could get the 5' board with 170 wing or similar. You can then mix and patch the wing sets if needed and play with a folding prop if desired, but I'd start with the above set up.
Here is the feedback on the 4'4" and even though it is more nimble, riders should be lighter riders and in flat waters with no chop and really good at getting up.
Getting up in chop is really tricky in choppy waters.
Hope this helps.
