    well you make me sound fat for 5'8" haha, well if your looking at a Merrick (aren't we all) then make sure you can def grow into it and can use it for a lot of seasons. That board size will be no problem to float you esp if it epoxy.

    You will be fine to even go lower, im 5'9 135 lbs and ride a 5'10 al merrick eagles wing (Machados Board). Plus the flyers are meant to be riden with a little less height and they got some extra width to them as well.

    completely depends man....i'm 5'7 and 140 and ride anything from a 5'6 to a 6'4 shorty. Depends on your skill level, what you want your board to do, and what type of waves you will be riding. I would go with something around a 6'0 or 6'1 if you want the "traditional" shortboard, for average size surf here in NSC and SNC. Go a few inches bigger if you have some bigger waves in your near future.
