I ride a 6'2x19x2.5 alt. as my good wave board, but i rode a shorter, thinner and not-as-wide board the other day in overhead barrels and it felt so much better- it was a 6' but im not sure about the width, the thickness was 2 3/18. Im only 168lbs and 6' tall, and im in good surfing shape. im an int-adv. surfer and i want to get a shortboard that has appropriate dims for me.
What dims would be good for me? my cousin said im riding too big of boards for my ability and size, so i was just wondering what you guys think cause most of you know boards inside and out.
Any positive input would be appreciaited.
It totally depends on what model you're looking at. A 6'0 in one model might work for you, while a 5'6 in another, and a 6'6 in another. Figure out want you want first, then go from there. If you rode something and liked it, go with that.
