Sorry for yet another post under this topic of buying a new board but would appreciate a bit of advice!
I have surfed for 20 years on and off and know my way round a wave most days. I have been riding a 6´1, 17 3/4 , 2 1/8 thruster. Goes fine above 4ft, super fast but a bit of a bugger when its smaller than that.
Have just moved to Byron Bay (australia) up the coast from where i normally surf. waves here are much less powerful, typically 2-4 and a bit fat.
Want to get another board (I am 33 years old, 145lbs, 5´10´´), want to try a quad, a guy was trying to sell me a 5´6´´ ,19 3/4, 2 5/8 board today. its very flat, hardly any rocker, glass board, swallow tail. Just seems a bit small, but i dont really know how these new boards go in these smaller fatter waves here.
Thanks for any advice!
