Yeah I can see the thinner version could be better. It's hard to shake the (naive) notion from my head that I want this board to work in everything though, which I guess the thicker version might. The other thing is I've only seen the 6'2" thick version available here in the UK, possibly because the retailers think the thin wouldn't work in our often gutless waves but probably because it seems the retailers are quite scared about having HP boards in stock because they don't sell so good compared to the hybrids. Interestingly the Bourez has FCS set-up here,which confused me because I read it would only have Futures because he's a team rider - how did that come about? I actually quite fancied a change to Futures because I'm sick of snapping FCS fins, I've lost faith in them. I can see having it in FCS is good for the majority though, I was just a little surprised to see it.
Thanks for the feedback though.

Is the Bourez board for me?Hi all
This is my first post on this forum and I'm afraid I'm gonna ask a familiar question, so itís with slight guilt and the feeling that I'm being a bit of an annoyance that I ask: Anyone got any feedback on the Michel Bourez 6'2" thick version? Ha ha. I think this is the board for me but I can't find any way to view it before buying it..
I am 6'3" and 88kg-ish and have a 6'0 Spitfire and a 6'4 shortboard. Since getting the Spitfire last year I've really noticed that 6'4 is too much board (I've been slowly coming down in size from riding 6'8"s over the last 15 years or so, so it's been a natural transition) and feel I'm really close to knowing what board I need after many years of slowly realising I can go shorter. Even the 6'0 has felt a bit too long at times, especially in quality surf, so I've actually sold the Spitfire to fund this new board and hope to raise the cash for a new hybrid later in the year.
Sorry, I've written more than I intended, so I'll wrap up. Basically I would say I'm at the bottom end of advanced, have surfed for 25 years, and my act is based around the bottom turn top turn, big cutties and aim for smooth carving, I like fins-out moves but I'm not a tricks kind of guy. I love Michel Bourez's surfing, and as a goofy it's Occy and Luke Egan who I've tried to mould my surfing on. Does this sound like the Bourez board would work for me?
Apologies for the life history and all the questions.
