    What should I ride?

    Im 6'0", 150lb with a wide stance and I am a front foot surfer. Most people you ask say that your short board should be a couple of inches taller than you. I recently started riding a 6'4" x 18.75 arakawa and its the best board I've ever had. Ive been surfing for 8 years and i feel like i wasted my time riding 6'0" and 5'11" and even 6'2"'s. The arakawa is also the widest board ive used. So what do you guys ride. It would help if everyone used this format to post their response.

    Height:
    Weight:
    Skill Level:
    Where you surf:
    Board Length Width and Thickness

    Thanks

    its the best board youve ever had because you ride crappy waves. if you get into some meat you need a smaller board

    not necissarily true. to paddle into the big stuff like north share you generally ride 6 to 7 inches taller than u,youll need the paddle power,i ride a 5'11 on smaller days n 6'4 on juicier stuff
