Im looking into buying a JS Combat 2/Flyboy or a Channel Islands Flyer. I need an all around good board, surfing waves anywhere from waist high to overhead+. I'm an intermediate surfer; height 6'2 roughly 175 lbs. I surf up and down the California coast, and i heard somewhere that JS is better in tropical water, which affects my decision because I surf in below 60 degree water half of the year.
ANyways, I was looking for what dimensions I needed, I think 6'1x19x2 3/8 was what CI gave me for specs for the Flyer. I noticed that neither the Combat nor the Flyboy had much in the 19x2 3/8 region.. and was worried that 18 3/4s x 2 3/4 would be too small.
Thanks for the help, appreciate it
