to celebrate the flat spell, i'm buying a new board. Please offer any suggestions/places to start looking. This is what i know<br /><br />surf in the northeast<br />1.5yrs surfing, but get to go often (maybe 125 sessions)<br />currently on a 7'10\" nsp fun board (too slow and want something to fit in the wave better)<br />5'10\" 170lbs<br />went to look at fish, but was suggested a rusty dwart<br /><br />So, please help if you can. let me know what worked for you stepping down. i'm shelling out some dough for my first new board and i want to get the right board for me to advance and ride more crummy 3' new england waves longer<br /><br />thanks
