    Santa needs help picking out a surfboard

    Hey guys,

    My friend's husband wants a new surfboard for Christmas. His best friend gave us these dimensions (below)... I need some help because I know a good amount about longboards but not shorties. Let me know! Thanks in advance.

    -5'10 in length
    -Mini swallow (tail)
    -2 3/8" thickness (could be a little thicker)
    -Classic white (not many graphics)

    brand new or used?

    Did his best friend get the dimensions from him?

    If it were me I know I would like to do the shopping for my board. But thats just me.

    If you are going new, don't let the sales guy in the shop lead you right over to the $700 Channel Islands racks.

    Best friend got dimensions from him. He would like a BRAND new board and is down with being surprised. Oddly enough, he's been surfing for years and every board has been given to him. He's never bought a board.

    I found these:

    • Rusty 510 Dwart
    • Rusty Piranha 5'10
    • Channel Islands Flyer 5'10


    Any good?

    Aviso lost swallow tail fish has similiar dimensions. On second thought seriously i would just hold the whole surprise thing *taking in consideration you have the money* and just go with him to the shops as a surprise.
