What you are saying is what I sort of went through in my head as well... Okay, asking to borrow a board makes a lot of sense. I haven't done it yet because their test board would be different from the ones I'm looking at, but ok, I'll do that anyway.
When I was saying "custom" I borrowed the term from the surf shop guys here in NSW. I kind of thought that what people usually mean by "custom" is a board made according to some specifications, but not necessarily mine.
I was actually hoping to elicit an answer along the lines of "no, a shortboard, even a thick one, is definitely not the way to go" or "yeah, it usually helps". Since it did not, apparently it's not clear cut, so the answer is "depends". To sum up the discussion, I'll try a board, and see how I go.

One More, where are you based roughly? It's possible I know someone or a shop that would give you good advice, let me know
