First off I am pretty small, 5"5 130ish pounds male, but I have a powerlifter/bodybuilder strength/physique. Feels weird saying that, but just take my word for it because I just want the best board for me, I don't want people to suggest a board for someone doesn't have the athletic ability to handle a board.
ANYWAY, I got a 7"4 21 1/2 wide 2 5/8 thick custom board.
And one of my questions is that maybe that board is for a bigger guy? I was thinking about maybe aiming for a 6"2ish board which would be 7 inches above my height that would both be able to suit my weight better and have duck diving capability.
After I surf 3-4 times a week for a month thats my idea, Ive been out before last year sometimes and don't know too much but is this a good idea since I am smaller than most or is it going to be too difficult dropping 12-14 inches?
