    I'm 5'8" 160lb.

    Really liked the firewire I checked out except it had a ding that the guy had professionally repaired (I started researching them more and read a lot about firewires breaking).

    Feesh and HurleySurf39- thanks but im actually leaning more towards getting a new board.
    Those Shipwreck boards look sick man. I'd rather get a fish from a shaper like that rather than a mass produced company. decent prices too

    The best fish are on the east coast, specifically the northeast. If you have allergies to certain kinds, well you're out of luck. Props to PB&J and the others for jumping on the play on words. Non-inflammatory wit is great on here. The abrasive wit is also great on here but spurs on drama class at times.

    As always, more experienced posters may have greater accuracy with this response. I've had 2 fish, 1 HP with swallow tail, and 1 groveler that is fish-like with dims and volume but skewed to the HP end as well. The legitimate fish I have now is a CI Retro Fish that has a significant swallow tail, tons of volume and thickness, and twinfin lokbox. It's superb for wave-catching, faster than a sorority girl, and skatey to the point where long carves and down the line turns are ideal comparative to snaps and more explosive and quick maneuvers. It's a fine board for next to nothing mush and even better in mush of the knee-high type. It's key to realize that what you gain in floatation, planing, and board-produced speed is a trade off for maneuverability in tight spots.

    The shaper in this thread who will spin you up a stick for 375 sounds like a great option. Won't hurt to persuade friends or other wahines in the lineup to let you give theirs a go to see how you like it. Also important to realize there's a spectrum of fish types and dims just like all other boards. A "fish" does not necessarily specify a certain narrow scope of board.

    Above all else, keep in mind that you can't eat all types of fish raw. But when you can, it's so choice coming straight off the boat.
