    I have been surfing for close to 7 years but just recently started surfing all year round I believe I am at an intermediate level but not sure exactly what that means so I would like to discuss what everyone else thinks intermediate is. Also I recently bought a channel islands fred rubble that is 6'1" by 19 and 5/8" by 2 and 1/2" its about 31 liters of volume, its a round tail and i have it set up as a quad but it is convertible to a thruster, my question is what board to buy next. I want something that I can progress my turns with and maybe a little less volume.

    Stop trolling for tail, short eyes. This is not the place for your twisted-ness.

    Get a SUP with a stripper pole for those flat summer days. Memory fails me, but I believe one of our esteemed colleagues from Fla can help you out.

    Im 6'2" weigh 165 and I'm pretty comfortable ridding head high up to 7 or 8ft when that actually happens I'm really looking for a board that snappy on turns but forgiving for me to get to learn them

    Is anyone aware?
    Are we here?
    What is consciousness?
    Is it physical?
    What brought you here?
    Are you aware?
    What's water anyway?

    Dude... if you can't snap a turn on the Rubble, maybe you haven't grown into the board yet.

    Otherwise... look for something with the widepoint behind center, and a pronounced hip or bump in the template. Don't go too much shorter in your quest for less volume... tall skinny guys need some length.

    Thanks for your help I think it might be because I ride it as a quad. Could that be it?

    If you really want to take your surfing boarde riding to the next level, you would be better off learning how to perform a propre sand reconne prior to your surf sesh. Concentrate on sand trajectory and gullies and the rest will come with time. Remember, a good surfer person always knows where all of the sand is all of the time. Always.

    And, yes, a propre 'Hello' threade is kinda essential here otherwise people won't take you seriously and this is a very serious place. Just ask Barry. Or Riley if he ever returnes.

    Our beloved Riley is being held captive by Gruvi. We need someone from Domino's Pizza to lure Gruvi away from his basement so Riley can flee to Seldom's house for a much needed session of bud and barrells.

    And we are VERY serious.

    If you don't believe me, just ask me.
