For moderate use I would recommend the XL.  The sem will stand up to a lot
more punishment but unless you are doing some serious free style, bunny
hopping or riding down steps, drops etc the XL model will be fine.

Ironically the XL has a better frame for many freestyle tricks.  If you ever
want to learn to ride one footed it'll be a lot easier to learn with an XL.

I use my sem for things like practicing bunny hopping and going down stairs.
A 26" sem would probably be a good choice for off road.
