Hey everyone, i need some advice on getting a new board. I'm 6'2' 200-205lbs range and i'm wanting a short board that will hold my weight and allow me to move and cut fairly easy. I live on the along the texas gulf coast, so the waves are never really firing that much...longboarding is pretty much the way the go most days. But occasionally there is a pretty good break here or there that i catch, but i know i can have a funner ride on if i had a short board. I'm look at the channel island m-13 and the bigg willy. They are both pretty thick boards and will hold my weight, i'm just not sure how they'll ride. If anyone out there has either of these models or recommend something better please let me know. I'm also not sure of which length to go with. 7'6"-8'0". any help is greatly appreciated!!!
