    Had a Surf + 'New Toy' which is almost exactly the same. Short, wide, thick, double bump thumb tail. Rode it 2 times and sold it. Then saw it 6 months later on Craigs List. Seemed to really bog down in the mushy stuff. When it was clean, wasit +, i'd use a different board. You might use it in chest high clean waves.... but for what i got it for, it didnt work.

    Just saw the Rascal 2 in TransWorld Surf. I think that would be more conducive to NJ waves...

    I ride a Timmy Patterson Rising Sun and love it. Wide full volume shortboard that can catch anything from knee high on up.

    I have had an Apache for a year and a half now, and it is easily the board I ride the most. Thing works in anything from Assa waist high mushburgers to overhead suckouts at ss.

    36 ? you're younger than me , lighter than me and get better surf !

    so you'll do fine on a 5'8" as Xtremeliquidshredda said ! Any bigger it will feel like a boat !

    Regarding volume : Keep in mind the Dwart carries more under your chest and the nose,with the widepoint more forward than a Piranha so It catches waves easily and generates instant speed on takeoff . The rusty "quadratic formula" places the fins closer to the stringer . So you get the speed of a quad with the pivot of a thruster. I like the stretch quad template. I haven't ridden it as a thruster.
    ~ good luck

    Thank you again mark
    I will be in mind your good advice
    I decided on the 5.8, now I just need to know where can I buy. The truth is that I prefer the boards made in USA, but I can't find any store that send to Spain and have fCS system
    Thx
