I'd say a ~120-130L that can take a foil.

What SUP? When you say "not a windsurfable one", do you mean it has no mast track? Putting in a mast track is no big deal. If she's interested in wave SUPing with a sail, or if the SUP has a nice glide, that may be the thing to do. One issue, though, is that most SUPs won't plane nearly as well as you Windsup 10.

nope, I am not the famous Jeff Brown, but I did meet him at Quaboag once Smile
ice boarding is way cool, just got into it this past year.

Peter, I believe her SUP is a 200 + liter plastic board, so I don't think she could install a mast base insert. The Windsup could replace that with ease. Just too bad they don't come up on the used market very much

cheers!

If she is a fast learner, a lite weight and truly wants to go fast, think Kona.
That's a board that you won't out grow. It's great in lite winds and will plane when the winds come up. The next board for the windier days that holds up well to abuse is the Bic Techno 152. Plenty of float, planes early, goes fast and turns good for a board that size. After that a nice 115 free ride board that will have her blasting in the gusts....Rocket 115 LTD might be the best free ride ever...I wish I still had mine
