I'm interested in the Naish Monarch and weigh 90kg. What size board should I get?

Alternatively, any other suggestions for a twintip board to use with footstraps for big air freestyle that can also handle a bit of chop?

Smaller is better.
The Monarch is made for ripping hard.
I'm 80kegs and ride a monarch 132.
I reckon even if I was 90kegs I'd be happy with the size.

I'm 90kg and have a 135cm but only ride it powered. If it was my every day board I would go 138cm

Is the monarch hard on the knees? Love the look of the monarch but worried it may be a bit too stiff. 43 and need to watch my knees now.

In certain conditions it will be. General swell and chop it tends to cut through but in sharp chop you will feel it as it's a stiff fast board.

Im 70kg and had the monarch 134/42. I ride mostly powered too, but ive added bigger 5mm fins to help on choppy conditions.

It performs pretty well in light winds too, great pop and upwind.
