    Blak Box Board help

    Definitely want a blak box but not sure what size I should get. I weigh 156 and I'm 5"10 and ride a 6"1. The website says ride a 3-4" shorter but bruce is almost my size and rides a 5"7. I wanna know if a 5"7 would work for me or if its not buoyant enough for me. I can get a 5"8-5"9 in 2 months but don't really wanna wait. I'm planning on using it for small surf like 2-4 foot. Lemme know what you think i should get thanks.

    5'8" or 5'9" would be ideal. you might feel yourself bogging a little on a 5'7" but i guess you can try. just get ready to pump your ass off

    I would go with the 5'9". If you are gonna be using it for smaller surf, I would definitely want that extra volume compared to a 5'7". those boards are sick though. 2 of my buddies just picked em up and they both love them. they ride it in anything from knee high to slightly overhead. i have the dumpster diver (very similar to the BB) and again it rides good in anything.

    I wouldn't worry about what Bruce is riding (he's a pro, I assume you are not).
    If you like your 6'1", go with the site's suggestion.
