This one is a tricky one; the preferred sizes seem to be all over the place. There an inmate here that's 150lbs and loving a 5'5", another 150lbs guy is loving his 5'7 and another guy at 165 who loves his 6'0" (@39ltrs!). Nobody is raving about the nano being a good paddler, yet the concensus is that it catches waves at will. In the larger sizes, 5'7" and up the volume takes large jumps in sizes making extra difficult making the right choice. With the extra rail length, big fat tail and the name 'Nano', was this board always meant to be ridden short? It is touted as user friendly board but so far seems wanting paddling around the lineup. I am 49 yrs, 5'10" and 168-170. I have been loving my 5'8" DA but struggle paddling it in high wind chop. I want an all rounder to take over from above the DA and when conditions are not ideal. I can't decide between a 5'8" 31.8 ltr or a 5'9" 33.8 ltr. I have looked at them both side by side and the different size is considerable. The 5'9" looks massive in comparison and has me thinking 5'8" all the way but I am worried all that rocker is going to make me the hunted vs. the hunter.
