I led you astray there I wrote really hollow but meant rarely, in other words the surf is not very powerful. I am not paddle fit but in the type of surf I experience most of the time this is not an issue. I have always liked short wider boards but I am concerned that the SP is quite a specialised board to surf...the baked potato and the potatonator look a good compromise between the wide area toward the back but a slightly pulled in nose. I found the addvance quite wide in the nose and pulled in at the tail which is good for cruisy surfing or learning but lacks a bit of speed and the ability to move the board around alot in smaller waves.

I have just sold my 7'2" Addvance and am looking to downsize a little for something suited to small 2-4' east coast of NZ beach break surf.
I surf only in the summer and get out 1 or 2 times a weed during the season.
I am 55, 89kg, and of average fitness. I would consider myself an intermediate surfer now.
What would be the best board for the conditions, it really gets hollow so you need something that is inherently fast for the flat spots. Would a smaller Addvance, Sweet Potato, Baked Potato or a Potatonator be the best option?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
