yea and there acutally arent that many dings come to think off it so i should be fine on that board thanx and nick dont worry ull grow outa that bc i was 4 10 and like 96 pounds in 8th grade when i was 14 and skinny and over the summer going into freshman year my weight got up to 120 and i grew like 4 inches, strart lifting and benchpressing one or two times a week and eat protien afterward bc if u wana gain weight gain it in muscle so that u can paddle faster
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.
That sucks bro, I had the same problem on the 21st. I ride a 7' 6" board ride now so it was almost impossible to paddle out and that beast is definitely not going to duck dive. 6' 4" is a tough length recently. Im probably going to buy a 6' for the 8 footers.
Dude....I have 6 boards....Right now I'm in love with my 5'6" Firewire fish. It's a twinny..and i ride it in all conditions except low tide hollowness. It's more like a skateboard. I love it. But, I have a few AJW's All 6'2" Bump Squash, Thuster, and a Roundtail. I have a sharp eye 6'2" Retro fish...single bump swallow. And finally a vintage 6'2" Hobie that sits on my wall. I take it out once in a while...
