Hi, new here so here we go : D, im a 6`2 175lb man and im currently surfing a 7`8 mini mal, however im starting to out grow her so im looking to move down to something shorter and more turnable. Most people would tell me to go for something like a 7`2 mini mal but unfortunately I havent got the cash to buy boards all the time so looking to go abit shorter. Surfed the GF's 7`2 and it seemed fine.
Ive been looking and like the look of the webber boards. Specificaly ive been looking at the Afterburner and the Pulse (formally the Fatburner). However im struggling to see the difference between the two can anyone help? Which of these is a better board for me. I surf in the North East of England where its generally mush/2ft to 4/5 ft on those special days : P Im looking to progress my turning and realy would like a board that I can start to duck dive to make life easier. I was looking around the 6`7 size will this be easily divable. I was also looking at the Webber `The One` board but understand this is more of a shorty that a performance fish. Or if you could suggest any other boards great!
Any advice would be great. Thanks
