    if you do want another board... im in your area and have way to many boards. i have a 5'5 you'd like. easy to surf and
    led lighting as sh!t. pm me.
    Completely agree with you.. Surfing is all about catching waves and good body mechanics..

    The majority of pros ride really low volumed board, because they're fit and proficient enough to not require much extra volume. So overall volume... that number in liters, beers, or cubic feet that everybody refers to these days... really does not matter that much to guys surfing at that level, relative to other design elements. Foil... or volume distribution... matters much more, and you don't get that from a single number.

    A lot about paddleability has to do not only with volume, but rocker and template as well. Combined, even a lower volumed board can paddle better than a higher volumed board, if foil, rocker, and template are dialed in.
