Hey everyone my name is Seth Mattox and two of my friends and myself are trying to start off a new brand brand of surf board called Troll Surfboards. We just wanted a little feedback of what you as potential customers might like from a surfboard. I should let you know that both of my friends are doing the shaping and one is designing some pretty sick designs for the boards, but as i said we just wanted to know what you guys would like as far as length width how thick you want it, basically what the best board for you is....
naked spearfisher5-6 to 6-2 shortys. no thinner than a js and no thicker than a rusty. i like the thickness on my al merrick. its the MX model, u can look it up on their site. cisurfboards.com i think
hahahaha no thicker than a rusty, no thinner than a JS. thats just to funny. Hopefully you Troll guys get where im coming from. ANYHOW. ill give you some dims of the boards i ride most in my quiver. it all depends where im at, and what the conditions are like on what i ride. F**K what they say about boards for the "east coast", if you know where to go at what time, better bring the gunniest stick you have. but for all around boards, it all depends on your target market. and dont forget, kooks will ride anything!

I say you should do all shapes and sizes. I am about 5'3" so I want to ride a 5'4" - 5'6" and im riding a 5'7" right now. I want to get a used board for cheap. But, how much are u planning on selling these boards for?
