    Semi-pro. This years' model is sick. Especially if you like a deep single concave and a hefty volume forward.

    I would go shorter personally like 6'4" x 18" x 2 1/4" squash tail or round pin for these east coast waves but that's just because I like short boards

    if you ride a 6.0 dumpster diver, going to 6.8 is a major increase in overall length and volume. even with a 5/3 on. 6.4 or 6.6 semi-pro sounds about right.
