Windsurfing is best served to those 160lbs and less. Any of you large people out there ridden an good jibing fun to ride board in the110 to 120 liter range. Have tried a Naish Enduro 120 and a Starboard Carve 122. Both go great in a straight line, but turning - not so much.

In decreasing order of importance and with good speed ...
Depress the lee rail (HOW varies from one board to another).
Pull with the back hand.
Tip the mast forward.
Tip the mast into the turn.

You will carve.

Some boards will crank turns with only the first step, others may want all the above. 120 liters will work just fine for any rider under 300 pounds, maybe 350, presuming reasonably consistent winds in the 20s. 250-pounders can flat RIP, from blasting to waves to tricks, on 80 liters, given good wind.

It's not clear from your post: Are you learning to carve gybe or do you already know how to carve gybe and are just looking for a bigger board?

Geez....some people just can't give you a straight answer.

RRD Freestyle Wave (Ltd). I have the 2007 (120 litre) model, it turns great.

Goya one. It's also a freestyle wave board; it turns great too. I have the 105 litre 2008 model, but it comes in a 116, 130, & 144 litres models too.

There are lots of other boards out there that will have what you want, but these two are the ones that I can vouch for.

Any company's FSW style boards, curvy template, slight tail rocker, inboard straps.

You threw him two sardines; we taught him how to fish and asked him what kind of fish he prefers. Which is more useful? Besides, the only question he actually asked seeks a simple "yes" or "no" question, the answer to which -- "yes" -- would have been useless.

I weigh 210 and the board I use 70% of the time here in the gorge is a 90L RRD FSW. It works great down to 4.2. You might not need to go as big as you are thinking, depending on where you sail mostly.

The RRD freewave goes for $2000. Are these new boards that much better than the old school. I was really looking for a swap meet jem that would work at 1/10 the price.
