I want to buy this board but not sure whether it is 175L.

http://www.amazon.com/BIC-Sport-Beach-Windsurfing-Board/dp/B00EO0G2Z4

It says 175D what does D mean here ?

Thanks

If it is truly the 175 as pictured, it is 175 L.

However, sometimes the board pictured is not exactly the one for sale.

"D" is BicSport's marketing abbreviation for "durable."

Actually it's their abbreviation for boards equipped with daggerboards. My first shortboard was a BIC Core 160D /with a daggerboard/.
The board in the picture is the 225/you can zoom in/ . When you click "select size" it gives you a choice of 175 and 225 /both are available/
