Hi, I have the same question in that I'm not sure what size BP to choose. I now live in far north QLD and the reef blocks out most of the swell. We surf out there a bit but mostly a fun little point on the coast here that is great on a longboard during the dry season. It's all wind swell, weak and small although I've had days out there on my 5'8 spitfire and its been unreal. These days are rare though and as much as the longboard is fun out there I'd like to try a BP or SP out there. 66kg, intermediate, surfing for 25 years, bad back which is why I ride 5'8 Spitfire 31L as my standard shortboard. (Hellfire would be optimal) I was thinking of going around a 5'9 which I know has a lot if volume but its a pretty weak wave at longboard size. Here's a clip of the average type of longboard waves we get here. If you can be bothered to watch and give some advice it would be appreciated. Cheers.
