    Need the right Size

    I'm 5'6 and weigh about 135lbs. Im looking for a new performance short board and I cant find the right size. Right now I am riding a 5'10 alchemist and it seems a little to big for me and hard to turn. Please help P.S. I would also like it to hold up in bigger day like the one we just had.

    uh... bigger day? When was that again??? Learn to ride your board and tighten up.

    get a 5'6" to 5'8" rocket fish thats less than 19wide and like 2 1/8 - 2 1/4 inches thick. that will hold you off in most surf up to head high, and you can surf your 5 10 on bigger days. plus, a rocket fish will be fun as hell for anything, even thigh high waves.
    just dont ever ever longboard

    hey i noticing that you live in lb i am guessing you got your chem from bare... When they made the alchemist they made it with a thicker nose and a wider deck so it would be easyer to turn thew mushy sections... I personaly have an al chemist and its a good board for small days.... But if your looking for a board for chest highs like in the winter i would recomend the C Mags pro modle or the new mike gleason model. My friend is basicaly your same hight and weight and he rides a Mike gleason Chem 6'0
