It may really bring a lot of fun to ride a sinker, cause I ride a 20l plus and 0 problems even in light winds, and I doesn't have any problems riding it till 30 knots either.
Actually a lot better question than what you might think.
I have had boards a tad below my weight, and very short.
No good IMO, unless in perfect winds - but how often do you get this?
Riding +5 litres now, works for everything (for me).
But I am not a hardcore freestyler doing loops and stuff - so is this the reason why so many (in this forum) go for ultra small sinkers?
As the swing weight is of course present, but IMO more a mental thing.
But I agree, the mental thing can be CRAZY dominant, so I get that....
Or is it because you ride in big breaking waves, and an advantage to "fight" these conditions?
Here, a few of the top freestylers ride small boards, but they regret when the wind drops or gets fickle - so for these it is a matter of freestyle jumping, but only as long as there is lots of wind.
