I live in NJ and just got 5/5 wetsuit for the winter and feel little heavy on my 6'4 Channel Isl./ whip. I saw a nice 6'10 but was told that'd be too big. I just got back into it and am okay surfer, weigh about 190lb and stand close to 6ft. I realize there is more to it then length but wanted to see what you others do/think. I rode a thicker 6'4 other day and saw significant paddle difference. Is 6'10 too big? Will it be harder to duck dive? I started long boarding this summer and love the paddle out/ wave catching ease but still like short boards and don't like long boarding on bigger days. Loving life again thanks to surf. Thanks.
