    Fall/Hurricane Swell Board

    Hey, I was wondering if you guys know of a good board for the fall/hurricane season, maybe a few days in the winter. I ride a 5'9 Al Merrick K-Small right now, but I'm not sure it will hold up very well in bigger stuff. I'm 5'9 and weigh 130lbs, but I like my boards a little bigger so I can get in front of the wave faster. Any suggestions?
    (LBI surf btw)

    I'm selling a good board for hurricane surf. I've only had it since December and rode it only on the overhead days since then which weren't many. Ridden 10x tops. Here it is:

    you have to paddle harder and get up quicker, that's why you're not 'getting ahead of the wave'. if you want a bigger board for this reason, look @ longboards

    Why don't you surf what you have until you find it's limit?

    While I have built a quiver, every purchase was based on a limitation of what I presently had. Why take a chance on a new board without knowing the limits of what you already have?

    Surf your K-Small.
