I'm riding a 5'9 Fred Rubble that has 24.5 Liters of volume, but I'm looking for a bit better small wave board. I'm proficient/advanced so I can handle the recommended 5'6 Neck Beard, just as an example. The Neck Beard has 26.5 Liters of volume vs. 24.5 Liters. How much of a difference will I notice with 3 inches shorter and 2 Liters more volume, as far as wave catching and ability to skate/glide over the flat spots?
P.S. I surf Huntington Beach every morning, so that's the mush I'm referring to. Also I weigh 155lbs. and I'm 5'10.
Thanks a ton boys and girls.
