Greetings, I've been surfing on and off for the past 35 years . Surfs have been few and far between for the last 20 years with a complete break for 14 of them. I got back into it a few years ago at the age of 47 and 13 stone, starting with longboards before downsizing to a 6'10 piranha quad . After a couple of decent surfs I thought I was 25 again and decide to go shorter, too short ; 6'2 fish , 6'4 pin tail , after becoming increasingly frustrated I bought a 5'10 sweet potato following much deliberation over sizing. It's been a revelation; I've never enjoyed surfing more, I love the volume, the shortness, the stability of the width , i never thought i'd surf anything as short as 5'10 again.
I very rarely surf anything overhead but do come across the occasional low tide barrel that's obviously where the sp struggles. I'm very tempted by the 6'2 or 6'4 potatonator but perhaps the 6'6 spitfire might be more appropriate, i prefer to keep the length down.
Any thoughts appreciated.

Where do I go from here?
Pc crvTook the newly purchased 5'10 SP out the other day at a fullish Saunton, first time I'd been in the water for a while and a little nervous as I hadn't surfed anything below 6'7 in 25 years. It was the best surf i have had in 25 years, can't stop smiling .
As suggested by many I put a pair of MRTFX on the front and the SF4's on the back, loads of drive , couldn't fault it.
At some stage I am going to want to experiment, and I have a set of PC CRV's (the curvey ones) that I want to try. Has anybody used these yet and in what sort of configuration ?
