Split board for a world tour?

Hello,

i am preparing a world tour ( Tarifa, Jerico, Paracas Boracay) and I discovered the world of Splitboard:
Since I travelling during 8 months with a lot of aircraft, bus, taxi ...
+ By myself and no driving I would have to go to the spot without a car ...
The split board seems to me the perfect solution! (Apart from the price that hurts)

I found :
- The Nomad 135 cm x 40 cm

- The 2016 Nobile NHP Splitboard (the Carbon version is too expensive)
http://www.nobilekiteboarding.com/products/nhp-split.html
different sizes 130x39 134x41 138x43

- FLYSPLIT: in 134x40 / 160x44
https://flysurfer.com/project/flysplit/

- Kite Element: 3 different boards
http://www.kitelementshop.com/category/split-kiteboards.html
But they have some negative returns according design of their split

- Newind
http://www.newind.net/splitboard/
same design like flysplit

After what I've read I will remember the Nobile (in first place after the different return) and Flysurf stands out from others,
What do you think?
+
I'm 1m92 for 93kg what size you will recommend me there? :?:

Thank you very much in advance :bye: !
PS : I am french so sorry for the mistake,) ( C'est la vie!)

The idea is that I bought my board before I go toTarifa next month and I bought the rest of my gear there after having tested for rent. (For splits it looks hard to find in stores and a also second hand)

Bonjour. I've personally got the Nobile NHP split 134x41. I don't have anything to compare it against and cannot comment on it's ride as I am a beginner. But as far as the build quality goes and general impression, it seems awesome!!
