I've been lurking around here for years. I'm 38 years old and I've been surfing a while. I'm 5'8 and my weight stays in the 160 - 170 range but in my age I'm not really getting out of the high 160s. I ride a 5'10 dumpster diver type board and a 5'10 round tail for bigger waves where the board has a pretty full foil. I have an old 6'1 hpsb merrick board too that I never use anymore in my old age and I'm getting a custom any day that is similiar to a sweet potato for the smaller days instead of using the log.
Now, I'm always looking to try something new and keep it fresh. I was thinking of picking up a 6'2 CB bonzer speed egg. I was hoping it could be used in average-better NJ waves and also in some of the punchier stuff too. I have the thumb tail for the other bigger days. Does anyone have any experience with these boards and the conditions they can be ridden in? I see most people get them in the 6'8 range but I'm thinking the 6'2 may be perfect for me.
