  • Potatonator me up

    Hi, I am a 38 year old early intermediate, weighing in at 177 pounds, mainly surf pretty weak beach break. I'd say my fitness was average maybe a bit above in the summer after shedding the winter skin.

    I just want a bit of a guide on which size board to go for please. I know the volume calculator is there, but want to make sure I chose the right one.

    I am thinking the 6'2"??

    At that weight and being an intermediate (whatever that means...its too subjective really)...that is way too much board. I would think 5'10 or max 6'0 but a 6'0 would be more for someone who is really more a beginner. If you were a solid intermediate you could easily go to 5'8.

      Hey Bgray64, I'm 85Kgs (around 180lbs) and the 5'8" floats me plenty even with a 6/4 wetsuit on

        Yeh I am closer to 90 KG and the 5'10 is perfect for me. I would also class myself as Beginner - Intermediate
