He started me on a 122 board (noname?) and a rihno 8m which was way underpowered. I gave him benifit of the doubt because the conditions were crazy and he didn't know my ability. The next size up he had was a 12m which I didn't even check type. it was north but more of a medium aspect than the rihno? and he dug up a board that was more like 140. By the time I figured this combo out I reckon it was dropping to under 20 knots (15 to 22) Was a good fit, little overpowered in the gusts. Did a few nice jumps and surfed a couple of waves. Was absalutely exhausted after an 2 x 45 minute sessions. Very different riding in the open ocean swells. Made me apreciate our flat water
