    Board Size

    Hey guys, I'm 15 and i've grown a bunch since last year. Last summer I was roughly 5'9 135 lbs. I rode a Webber SLX 5'10 18 1/8 2 1/8. Now I'm almost 6' 145 lbs. I liked this board a lot but i've outgrown it. Im gonna try to trade it in towards a new board in April during spring break. I surf in Emerald Isle, North Carolina so the waves are usually knee-waist maybe chest+ on a good day. What size shortboard would fit me well?

    If you liked your previous shape, talk to a shaper. Give him the dimensions of your old board, and how much you've grown. Any good shaper should be able to increase the dimensions a bit for you and get you dialed in.

    I'm 5'10", 160lbs, and I ride a 6'1" x 19 thruster on most days, if that helps at all. I rode a 5'10" x almost 20" wide Twin Fin for 4 years, but four days in overhead surf on Barbados, and the twinny finally met it's match. I'm back on the thruster again now.
