    Try to borrow some unsuspecting fools board ( wink wink ) and ride it like you stole it!
    I just want to stay on the fun side of the island so yes that was sarcasm.

    in general, i'm grabbing my 6'2"x19 3/4"x2 7/16" CI Dagger squash tail w/ SOAR LE8 tri fin set up from punchy stomach high to about head high. lower entry rocker, plenty of tail rocker=paddles easily, but still fits tightly in the pocket.
    if it's bigger or more powerful, i'll use a 6'4"x19 1/4"x2 1/2" CI Ft. Knox round pin or Campbell Bros. 5 fin bonzer, also a round pin. more entry rocker, pulled in tail, still fast & drivey down the line but more control w/ the pulled in tail. the 2 boards are nearly identical in outline & rocker, but the differing fin set ups change the whole experience.

    I'm 28 yrs old, 6' and 185lbs. I'll take my 5'11x20x2.5 Lost v2 rocket any day of the week. Exaggerated nose rocker helps the wider outline pull into steeper surf.

    Many options but 12' by 24" by 2" is a favourite, puts shortboards to shame in the wave making stakes.

    5'5" by 19.5" by 2 3/4 diamond tail quad+ nubster

    5'9" x 19 3/4" x 2 1/4" custom shape I designed. Sort of similar to a ci neckbeard but with a few less mush board features. Ride it as a thruster or quad accordingly
