71cm wide wingboard, can you still paddle it well when lying on it or is it too wide?

No way for me to demo etc, but just wondering if it would be possible to paddle out lying on the board of 71cm width or will it be too wide? I'm 188cm. My idea is to paddle to the windy area from wind shadow area.

Thanks again!

You will be able to prone paddle it no worries for when you need to. It wont feel great to paddle a long way but will be ok for when you need to paddle it

That is only 28 inches so easy. I have paddled my 29 inch wide board 1k back into howling offshore with busted wing. Not enjoyable but easily doable.

Hi , i think its 32 1/4 inches wide , from memory 2.2 cm to the inch . However the point is I agree you can paddle it .
