So I'm heading off to france in 3 weeks time to live there untill end of september, I will be stayin in or around Vieux Boucau and I'm just looking to buy a new board before i head out as my current ones are feeling a bit beaten. anyhoo, im guess from June - August its gonna be pretty small slowbreaking 2-3'' the majority of the time and i was just wondering what board dimensions you guys think i should be after roughly.
I'm 6'0, about 155-160lbs, I skate and am a fulltime ski and snowboard instructor, but i havent been on a surfboard the last year due to work, but have been out on the sponge a couple times in big swell since i got back to ireland. I have been drop kneeing fine on steep barreling waves, but my current sticks are a bit unstable for me atm and I want a board that i can have a bit more fun on this summer.
anyways my current boards both are about the same 6'0 & 6'2 - 18 1/2 - 2 1/2
i dont want to go back to mini mals and all that shiz since im passed that, so just a bit more of a stable floatier board but still fairly short? whats the verdict?
