Hi guys. I am an at an early intermediate stage but surfing around 4 to 5 times a week, and feel I am progressing fairly steadily. I am looking to get my first 'proper' board - currently on an 8' beginners plank. Have done the volume calc thing, and it comes out with a 610 spitfire, which in think would be way too much board for me. Input details were beginner / inter, 70kgs, avg fitness, 50 yrs young. The bits it didn't seem to take into account are that I'm only 5'5, and female (we girls have 'curvy' bits that often make us weigh more!). Also, after 20 odd years of water polo, some at state level, I'm a pretty strong paddler still. Any thoughts? Am thinking 608 spitfire, or would this still be too much board? Should I go for something completely different? I surf mostly around Phillips Island, Vic. Thanks for any thoughts!

Boards for (short!) girls?!
