I'm 6 foot 250ish pounds and obviously need a barge or something close to that to float me. I can surf in the intermediate category. I'm no Kelly Slater but i'm not a total kook either.
    I am 5'8" and 165lbs.

    I'll be seeing phil on saturday with another one of my friends I'm getting into custom shapes, and i might order one or two more from him as well.

    I'm about your same height/weight. That's the type of board I learned on to get in the smaller size board range. Are you coming down from a longboard? Once you get comfortable with that board, you can start going shorter. You will see at your height/weight, a board in the 5'10 to 6'0 range will really blow your mind.

    I am only about 1.5 years into surfing, and I have only lived near the coast for the last 8 months. I have been using my 7'4" Island Inspired funshape, but was looking for something smaller and more maneuverable. My wife uses a 6'10" regular Gary Wilson egg, and I thought that was a fun board. I just went to Phil with my thoughts and preferences, and he figured out the dimensions. I would like to eventually buy a 9'4" performance longboard, and something a bit smaller like 5'10" as you mentioned. However, I am sure this board will become my workhorse to cover all varieties of waves.

    Your board was my inspiration. I loved the colors, and the shape. I told him to keep a similar color scheme, then do whatever he likes with the rest of the design. It is a real piece of art. I don't think there will be any board like this out in the lineup.
    I think it is great that Phil uses premium Futures fins. There aren't many shapers throwing those in for the price of a custom.

    Took her out today for the first time. Wave were not really as predicted, but more in the knee to waist range. Very clean, and perfect weather. I only managed to get in about 4 good rides in a 1.5 hour session. I was a bit skeptical at first, but that was due to my lack of experience on this size board. I had one awesome right and one really good left. This board really feels stable on the face of the wave. It also turns much better than any other board I have ridden. I am really happy with the performance, and hope for some real waist high stuff with the incoming tide later today.

    I really like the double concave bottom of the board. It grips in bigger stuff. I don't usually take it out in anything smaller than chest to head, but it should perform in the smaller waves. I caught tons of waves this morning on my fish that PT made.
