I am looking for a step up board from an Al Merrick Pod 6',2.5,20.5 (34L). Could probably go the 5'10" but as an older surfer the 6' catches waves easily for me although I probably lose out on performance. (I'm 54 and 77kg) It is only 12 months old with lumps and bumps all over it. Hence, I am keen to buy a board that hopefully will look better after 12 months at least. The Pod handles waves for me from 1-4' but am looking for a board from 3-6' before I go for a more performance board or ultimately a 2 board quiver. I surf mostly reef breaks around Torquay, Australia. Am thinking of the Hellfire or Mini-driver. The MD volumes for 6' look too small and the 6'2 too big?????, whereas the Hellfire volumes for 6' and 6'2" are closer together. Any thoughts on which board and size would be appreciated.
