    Get ready for some abuse coming here for board advice. Might want to give up some info like where you live, how much you get to hit it, what you are coming off of and how old you are. Keyboard wanking and dreaming does not count. Do you surf anywhere near a decent surf shop?

    Dont buy a new board.. every kook wants their ONE board that is going to take them from ****ty waist high days all the way to pipeline in fashion looking good. Buy ditry ****ty cheap shortboards till YOU figure out what you need then ask a local shaper to work with the dimensions you give him. You might find that you need more than just one shortboard.

    It might take 5-6 boards to really dial in what you need (for that new board).

    Try different shapes.. sell them on craigslist if you dont like them.. it is personal preference. Im honestly giving you the best advice.. anyone else who tells you what to buy is just telling you what they want. Every BODY is different no matter how much you weigh and how tall your are you are different. Go surf and stop asking questions or ill start trashing you, you grommet.

    Rusty makes a great board but they have gotten too expensive as of late... especially when you are not so sure what you want. the best advice I could give is try and find something on craigs list that is close to what you are looking for in size. low ball your offers and you're gonna get a board in the size range you need to test and you'll save some cash.
