So after 6 intense months of surfing, I want to go to the next level "intermediate" and start surfing bigger waves for the winter season. (Chest - Head high here in San Diego California).
My old "egg" board was an excellent beginner board but it has trouble trying to surf steeper waves (it tends to pearl a lot) and not always can I grab them to the sides.
Thus, I'm looking for some kind of fish or fish-hybrid
So I read reviews on sharp eye's SBT-S :
http://www.sharpeyesurfboards.com/surfb ... rds/sbt-s/
And it's classified for small to - head high surf, having enough volume for good paddling and a good rocker to avoid pearling, which seems just right for me, plus here in SD I can buy them used for a really good price.
A guy is selling me one for $200 dlls. The only problem I see with it is that it is 6'4. It says on the previous link that this board comes in sizes 5'0" - 6'4" so my mentality is that the 6'4 is maybe designed for a bigger guy?. I'm 5'10 and weigh 155 lbs. The guy who is selling it said first that he was 175lbs and then he said he was 5'10 and weighted 165lbs and that it was "the lightest board he's got".
I'm a big skeptical, would the size be good for me?. Thanks.
