Hello from the UK! I've been learning at my club for about 3 months and now want to get into WW, so I'm demoing a Remix 69 on Saturday, and I'd appreciate a little advice as to whether I shoudl get that or the Remix 79. The reason I'm asking is because I weigh 224 lbs, and I'm 6' tall. I've sat in a 69 (in a shop) and it was great - comfy and a really good fit. The weight of a 69 is 130-240 lbs, so at 224 lbs I'm near the top. The range of the 79 is 180-280, so I'd be in the middle (roughly speaking).
My question is this - from a paddling point view as a novice on WW, would I learn better in the 69 or the 79? - I'm assuming i'd be lower in the water in a 69, but I don't know what difference that would make!
If someone is able to specify what advantages/disadvantages I'd have in the 69 and the 79 that would be a great help.
P. S. Congratulations on a great forum, by the way
