I always wanted to go to Chile as some of the biggest swells of the planet. Robby Swift gave me the opportunity to come and visit her new home in Chile and windsurfing surfing on an icon such as Punta de Lobos.

So much for the idea that ONLY a small board can be used for wavesailing...
Thanks for posting the video, excellent and inspiring.

Actually volume is your friend in waves, and I'm not sure I know anybody
who wave sails who thinks a 65 ltr board is a good idea (unless it's
a 101 pound woman). Most wave sailors I know go about 10 ltrs larger
than what they would use in Gorge chop.

More particularly, in the video they are talking about a 100 liter board. JP wants to use it and he is a fairly small guy, I doubt he would normally use a 100 liter board in waves.
Now Robby is about 190 lbs, so a 100 wouldn't be that big really, but I doubt from his conversation that he would use it very often in waves.
Finally, I hear from folks that my 100 liter or even 104 is too big for use in waves, but apparently JP could make it work. Now I'm a heavyweight so 104 is no problem at all in waves. But I do think my 116 JP Allride would not work in waves but maybe I'm wrong about that.
Add; Jason is listed at 178 lbs.
