  • DA 5.8 thickness?

    The web and catalog show the thickness of the 5.8 as 2 5/8. Boardshop posted a link with some very good pictures of the 5.8 and the thickness written on the board is 21/2. This may also explain some of the volume questions about the 5.8 DA.

    The 5'6 is 2"3/8 so I'm sure the 5'8 is 2"1/2

        Curawong, thanks for the picture. Looks like the thickness of the 5.8 and 5.6 are incorrect on the web site.

          There was a slight tweak to the files which changed the volumes slightly before the DA went into production. Unfortunately, this came after the 2014 catalog was already printed.

            Need help with sizing one of these. I normally ride between 33-34 liters volume which would put me on a 510 DA. The 58 seems more my dims although it is less volume. I have a 510 spitfire and a 58 PN. Suggestions? Im going to dump the PN once I pick up the DA.

              I'm sure more experienced members will chime in but my guess is the 5'8" due to a lot of that volume being under chest.

                I was in the same situiation as you Surf Fiend. I had a 5,8 Pnator (sold now) and first went for a 5,10 DA, bad decision it was to corky for my weight. The shop let me switch it for a 5,8 and it was spot on for my level (if i had better surf where i live i could have gone with a 5,6) There is so much foam under chest so it paddles better then a 5,8 pnator. Go for the 5,8 DA if you like your pnator.
