I am foiling about 7 months ago, I am now begining to gibe. I want to buy a 110/120 cm board, only for freeride, I will use Moses 633 wing, 91 mast. I am 75 kg, and kiting in 10 knots stable wind with 12 M foil kite.
I can see very different volume in boards in the market and I dont know wich one can be better for my level.
I thank some advice

Dwarfcraft 3'6" is 19L. The Micro version is less. I really like 'em.
I also really like the Axis Tray 110cm which is far less volume.
The shape and outline is more important to me, volume almost irrelevant.
You gotta try them out.

I also use an Axis 110 Tray which is low volume and it's light and fantastic to foil with. But prior to that I used a Axis MV125 which is very thin with virtually no volume and I liked it because of the low volume. In my opinion the only benefit of volume is to add stiffness to the board. The less volume required to do that the better.
As Kamikuza has stated, shape, outline and also area is what's important. If you're needing volume to gibe, you need to change your technique.
