Any thoughts on going with a 5'10-6'0 PN over the SP? Looks like the volume is about the same and the paddling may be better on the PN.
Looks like you know exactly where I'm coming from. I checked the dims on the 6'6 I have ridden and it is exactly like the 5'6 but a foot shorter.
Thanks for the feedback
I have checked the SP out a few times and even 2 times last week. Everytime I go in thinking 1 thing and come out thinking another. Even considered picking up a mini simmons in 6'2-6'4 range but I keep coming back to the SP.
Goanna thanks for the feedback. To me it seems that most people want to go as small as possible with the potato family. I want to go small without the risk of getting something that will require a huge learning curve due to the wave quality where I live.
Thanks for the feedback. 5'6 still seems crazy short since a 6'6 is the smallest board I have been on before. My thought process on going a little bigger was to help with the transition from the longboard. I was thinking with going bigger I would be able to paddle faster and catch more waves. I knew I would sacrifice some of the turning ability but, when your usually dealing with a 9'0 X 22 X 2/7/8 the donwnside of going from a 5'6 to a 5'8 -6'0 was an after thought.
Oversizing the sweet potato disadvantages?What are the disadvantages to oversizing a sweet potato?
I have been considering the sweet potato for a while but, I'm having a hard time with wrapping my head around riding a 5'4 or 5'6.
I currently ride a 9'0 Takayama and really would like to change it up. The SP appeals to me for it's small wave ability and size. Traveling around with a 5'10 or 6'0 is a lot easier than my 9'0.
I don't have any interest in the addvance.
Surfing on the East Coast
No real reason but it is more difficult for me to catch waves on. There were more than a few times I would have liked to have the fish with me. Thanks for the help.
I do ok on it. Dimensions on it are 6'6 x 22x 2 5/8. I really don't surf it that much. This past yr I mainly surfed the 9'0 and 7'6
I have a 7'6 funboard shaped Takayama and a 6'6 quad fish. I don't have a problem riding either board.
6'6 is the shortest board I have ever ridden.
Baked Potato from a longboard6'0ft, 175lbs, intermediate ability, good shape, currently riding a 9'0 DT2 and looking to change things up a bit. I am looking at picking up 5'9 BP. I am concerned with dropping for a 9'0 to to a 5'9. Should I consider the 5'11 or a different board?
I surf in VA Beach in 1-3ft mushy waves.
