    winter surf what kinda board ?

    i got a 6'0 shortboard thats pretty thin, i think its 18 3/4 by 2 1/4 or something close to that so if im 5'5 and 125 pounds think thatll hold me up even when i got the wetsuit on and all? and will it paddle fast enough and ride smooth enough to be a good winter board ? if not what should i get

    Angry Sux 4 me

    What sux 4 me is that i m 5'4" and 90 lbs (14 yrs old) and i dont weigh enough to duck dive on my 6'4" board! So yesterday (9-22-08) When the waves were around 8 feet and the rip tide was crazy, i just tried to swim underwater and abandon my board like usual, but instead the riptide nearly drowned me as it thrashed my body underwater, consecutively.

    thanx guys and that sucks dude, try turtle rollling for the smaller whitewash sections instead of ditching ur board and at least bc the boards so big and ur so small that it probably paddles reallly fast haha do u have the money for a smaller board or no ?

    in regards to the surfboard... yea i agree with Xtreme... but also if you already bought the board then its gonna have to be allright. You got it used right?

    I eat

    I eat a good amount but i have a real fast metabolism, and i m 14, remember?... And it kinda sux bc i m always cold in the winter, i wear a 3 quarter wetsuit when its 72. And i dont really have the money for a smaller board, unless i give my board to my older brother because he has a ****ty 6'8" hard apoxy Indestructable NSP, and its like a brick
