What's your weight? In most cases your height has nothing to do with the equation...

This is a pockety, top to bottom board with continuous rocker.
Q: What was your last board, dimensions, and what type of surf are you on? What is your goal within surfing? Do you have a 5mil suit for winter? Have you surfed a board that is similar to proton before?
I am 190 lbs. I am 6'. I like the 'proton' everyday @ 6' X 18 5/8's X 2 3/4's. My step up for Delmarva is a 6'3" with slightly more beef. My style is heavey legged and I surf hollow shorebreak. I try to pop airs, but a big turn/snap is more my style. This board is narrow compared to the common trends of the day. I like narrow boards, but that is because my focus is in shorebreak. I actually took the dimensions of a proton and found a WRV Chronic (http://waveridingvehicles.com/surfboards.html) that was very close in dimension.
I am going to work with WRV and try to get some more boards dialed in based off of the proton. I LOVE CI boards, but I can get 5 boards from WRV for the price of 3 from CI and I can pick them up in person being semi-local.
