Heavier riders need more of a lift to get going so a longer throw across the window can help when underpowered, so longer lines can help. 23m seems perfect for those sizes unless you want to ride waves underpowered and want a quick tight turn.

What is the bar length as that can change things a bit as well? On a 9-10m kite I would ride 20†bar 23m lines at your weight but try and borrow shorter lines and give it a try yourself. Lots of Slingy folks out there happy to help.
