    Help with board

    Im going to get a webber spoon but im not sure of which size i should get a 5'6" or 5'10". The 5'6" is recommended for people <155lbs and the 5'10" is recommended for people -10<165lbs>+10. Im 6' 155lbs so im right in between sizes. I was thinking about getting the 5'6" but i dont want it to be to little. What do yall think?

    I would go with 5'10 or maybe 5'8 if that size was available. You can never have too much foam.

    Is this new stick gonna be your main ride or just something to play around with? What's your regular axe of choice in relation to the spoon? If you're wanting super skatey go with the 5'6" makes for a squirrley twinnie,5'10" Still kinda small but not quite as dinky. I had a 6'4" spoon and it was a fun experimental board for me,worked really good with webber's curved fins too.

    yea this will most likely end up being my main board, i have a 6'0" Channel Island M4 right now but it has seen better days.. Im hoping to get this board and be able to ride it most of the time and only use my old board on bigger days or when there is some sketchy shore break
