that's what great about being a manager of a surf shop.... great discounts on boards!
I'd say im an average surfer....i was also looking at the Lost Monkfish 5'8" Surfboard....for my height its just real hard for me to pick out a small board...the 6'2 Perfection board i have is a short board...would 5'8 not be too short? I've always surfed longer board...
do any of the shops in mb/nmb carry these lost boards? also, anyone try out a webber? The new minifish looks pretty fun
do yourself a favor and get a mayhem shape.
Have u tried Surf City or The Village Surf Shop in Garden City....Berts has a ****ty collection and so does that other little surf/skate shop on nmb end....I haven't been to Surf City (before they moved) since i moved down here but i remember the last time i was here they had some decent boards and the village surf shop sometimes has a few brand boards other then "perfection", thats where i got both of mine @
It's been my experience that no matter what shape it is that you are interested in, if you find someone local to shape it out you'll find it working better than a lot of these boards shaped by folks that have no clue what you are surfing in. I've personally made it a habit to have boards made for me this way, but even off the rack, the local guy's stuff always works best for me. I've lived in 8 countrys on 3 conts. and it's never failed. That's not to say you can't get a board made by someone from someplace else that will work well, just that your chances are better the other way...
right now i ride an al merrick flyer epoxy 6'1" and it works for me. But they do good in the small surf as well as the big stuff. I dont know about any of the others but the merricks are still very trusty as i think. But the webbers are gay.
im 6'1'' 230 pounds and ride a 7'6' and a 6'6'' short thats powerful its and Al merick Sasami its thick and rides great you could go way short if you keep it thick i think its 2.5 inches so go check it out
