Not tryn to be a j@ck@ss, was just being honest- dimensions were way off on that board. I didn't start caring about what I rode until I could pull a full wraparound, cause I prob couldn't tell much of a dif on things like fins n stuff either.

    what are your specs on the 6'3?

I'll find a place to paddle out and I'm confident that I can make it outside just not confident in my equipment when it comes to actually dropping into a wave this size. I'm 5'8" 160 lb. Thanks for the info
    I have a question similar: (me being 5'7 & 130 lbs) Would my 5'11 X 19.25 X 2.5 handle the drop on anything up to d-oh (i'm not going out if t-oh sets show up - gun or not). It has a baby swallow and is a thruster. Since it's thicker and wider than a regular shortboard it paddles faster so wouldn't that help?

    Like what rightdude said, I'm not concerned about the paddle, I can surf all from 7:30 - 4:30 and my arms feel fine, it's just the drop. plus, if all possible, I'm saving my money for a new wetsuit, not a step-up.

    I dunno man, I would personally recommend a 5'4 or 5'6 mini velo simmons for 10 to 12 foot face...


    Mine...





    Biggest I've had this out in was 2 to 3 foot overhead (8 to 10') but it was mushy surf.

    i can paddle reallllly fast even on my 6'2 so i will be taking that out first then if it doesnt work out then i will be getting my dads 6'8 just take a few paddles down the face of the wave
