I'm a low advanced but newer150 lb sailor. I'm thinking of off season light winds......how big a board do I need to use my huge sails. I have a 6.9, 7.2, 7.9, and 8.9.
I have a ton of boards, but only old free ride boards in the higher volume range....... 1- 100 ltr, 2 - 96 ltr, 1 - 93. I have plenty of really big slalom fins to use .
Will this work well, or do I need a higher volume board, or specific slalom board. ?

100 liters, 7.2 max
Trade some smaller boards for bigger, depending where you live and luck.

8.9-- something 75cm or wider
7.9-- something 70cm or wider

You probably be uphauling these sails, enough volume for you to comfortably uphaul in your conditions (more for wavy conditions).

Larger than 100, the mention of width has considerable merit.
IMO a 125 liter is near , I like my 135.
