Blade Face Size vs Body Weight

Can anyone tell share the relationship of a paddle blade face size and body weight. My initial assumption is that the heavier a person is (I am), the larger blade face you will need to prevent slip. If you know of a chart can you point me in the right direction?

Where to paddle?

Howdy, I paddle off Kailua beach and love it but it's getting kinda stale. Flat, Mokes, etc. Just wondering where you guys go around Oahu? I've done the Hawaii Kai downwind run but it's a little gnarly for me when I go alone or with my GF in the 2 man. Also I'd love to do some of the long swells off Waikiki but there's so much reef and I'm tired of pukas. Any good spots to launch over there that won't destroy my boat.

Thanks in advance!
