So after much debate I ordered a 5,6 potatonator a few weeks ago (I'm 6ft, 160lbs, intermediate surfer, and surf in a 5/4 boots gloves on Vancouver Island) which I'm beyond excited for it to arrive hopefully next week, but am looking to get something to complement it for when the waves pick up as my ancient 6,0 wade tokoro has finally packed it in last weekend.. I like the board but with it being constantly waterlogged it only seemed to excel when it was really big and clean and I bought it used long before I knew how to surf properly ..so really looking for a board thats going to help progress my surfing without being a really high performance board where i'm just going to struggle using it, especially when the waves aren't great. I'm pretty much trying to build a two board quiver to cover me for nearly anything.
Leaning towards the 5'11 hellrazor as it has a bit of length but is quite a bit wider, though i see a few people my weight also riding the 6,1 so I have no idea what would make the most sense..
Here's a video of the break I ride 90% of the time, so aiming to use the board when it's bigger/punchier than this:
