    I'm so keen to try the Nano after trying the VG. The VG just went so fricken well so if the Nano is just as fast and more forgiving then I'm going to wait until I demo it as well.
    Old mate Megsy has the VG and picked up a Nano today and I always value his opinion highly - I'm keen to see what he says.

    BTW - How bloody good is it to have two insanely good boards to choose from (and a few others for that matter)???

    Goanna- you gonna love the Nano, and so right on. Firewire is killing it with all these models, so many good ones to choose from.

      Well I decided to err on the side of caution and ended up going with the 5'9" and will hopefully have it out this weekends upcoming swell. Not sure what fins to throw on it so will try some standard F6 thrusters and see how things go. 49yrs, 77kgs, 5'10, beg/int

        Hi everyone I'm looking for dome Nano sizing opinions if anyone cares to input. Currently on a 6'8 Hellfire and 6'6 dominator both padle pretty well and volumes suit thier purpose , I also have a number of other boards in around those volumes but in sizing the Nano my concern is paddle with the increased rocker. My current shortest board is 6'3 but flat and my more rockered boards are 6'8 the volume on the 6'2 nano is about the low end of what I normally surf and the 6'4 is a few litres up on any thing I surf but I am not sure if this will be required because of the rocker. Also not being able to see one this long locally I am not sure how the volume is placed if it is centrally it wouldnt worry me too much but if it is out towards the rails and nose I would be concerned. I am 54 at 105 kg had a shoulder reconstruction which aggravates if too much demand is put on it, surfing 3 times a week in waiste to just overhead beachies and reef breaks.
        5'10 sweet potato was great , 6'4 Dominator was great but I ran out of shoulders, 6'6 Dominator is good fun easy paddle, 6'6 Chubby Chedda was great but I ran out off shoulders, 6'8 Hellfire is great, look forward your input.

          I'd ride it 1-2" smaller than Dom personally.

        I'm 48, 5'9", 165lbs and a crap paddling intermediate. I had all the same worries when choosing a Nano. Went for the 5'7" and it was right for me, even towards the upper end of what I'd want I'd say. If you read the other thread I just snapped it :( but I'll be buying the same size again. Easy paddling, easy wave catching, moderate rocker (not flat like the potatos). Love the board.

        Does anyone think it looks like it was designed by a 5 years old :) Kind of throws the rule book out the window? I've got a 5'10" Unibrow as well for sizing reference.
