Hey everyone,
thoughts quickly, I can get my hands on a 2018 gtw mana 9'5 for a very good price, board has only been used twice,
here goes, can I get away with this board at 6'3 and 119 kgs ?
ghis is my third board, I was waiting for container of sunova speeds to arrive 9"11 , but this is close to home and 1/2 the price
Thoughts ?

Great board but I'm thinking you will struggle being so much over the recomend max weight for that board.

JDM - Go for the Speed mate.
Don't rush In to a purchase just coz it's cheap. These boards are a big investment and you want it to be right. Don't compromise on what you want. Boards come and go.
Be patient man - and keep your eyes on the prize.
Hold your line and go for the Speeed.

I went from a mana to a speed. It was like getting out of a datson180 and into a bmw. I did drop in a considerable amount of litres to be fair to the mana though.

Ditto to this - 10' x 33" Mana @ 190L down to a 9'5" Speeed @ 160L. Chalk & cheese. Could possibly have even done the 9'2" @ 146L or at a stretch the 8'10" @ 130ish but I love the 9'5" and it's got just about the right volume & stability for my weight & ability
