Hi All- My GF and I are year round NJ bodyboarders, we have surfed in 5-10 foot swells.
I have a Bitzer Wave Rebel Exit 98 Epoxy board 38".
I am 5'5 105 lbs. Its a heavy board and I am not sure if it is the right size for me. I was out during Storm Noel and when the larger sets came through it seemed to be difficult to duck dive, or if I toss the board to wave dive, the board seems heavier than me and pulls be backwards! I am at an intermediate level working to an advanced.

Is this somthing that I just need to get used to or should I look into a different style board?
