Have been riding a 6'10" spitfire and just recently a 6'3" baked which I really enjoy. I'm 62 years young ,classed as fit to very fit and have been surfing 30years. The BP has really opened up a whole new dimension in short board surfing for me,which I enjoy.On the volume calculator I fall within the 44 to 49ltr range. I am thinking changing my board sizes down to round the 50 to 52 litre volume, like this. 601 BP,606 Potatnator,7'Hellfire . I like a bit of volume as at times I can be a little slow to my feet.The 6'10 spit has cured this so I feel I don't want to go too low in volume ,even though the calculator says I could go 5'11" BP and a lot lower in the Potatnator.We are blessed with good surf in our area in NZ ,points and reefs that give me quality waves at least 3 days a week. I would appreciate any feed back. Thanks.
