View Full Version : 6'4 Sweet Potato
Now the sp has been out for a while, anyone got size advice for 6'4 115kg in beach break, 31, surfing 15 yrs most days, but been on longboards for 5 yrs? Don't want too long as feet won't be over the fins
But need the paddle float!!

What size SP would be in the 55l range? That should be alright I'd say.

Yeah focus in the 600 or 602....
That would be my suggestion.

Nailing multiple 360's on one wave in front of a bunch of kooks is always fun=)

Aaron - I keep getting the SP 3/4 of the way through the 360 and wipe out, any tips?

If you are going a big SP then you will need a big arse set of fins for it. I found the SP to be the most sensitive board io have had to fin changes. Now I'm running MR TFX in the front it just feels good.
It will take 5 surfs to get used to the drop in length (it took me that long coming of a longboard) but well worth the perseverance, a lot of fun.
