A little history before my questions. I am a 30 yr old intermediate/advanced surfer from Charleston, SC. I’m 6’3” and weigh appx. 180lbs; I’ve been surfing for 20 years. I have a long board (9ft) and a short board (6’ 4” X 18”X 2.25”). Usually the waves in Charleston are weak wind swells averaging 1-3ft. However, about 10- 15 days a year we will get good ground swell from hurricanes, but then, the waves are still only head high at most.
I am looking for a short board that I can ride most of the year.
Will I be able to ride the BP or SP consistently on 1-3 ft waves? What about larger waves? Is the BP a better option if I want a little more performance? What about size selection? Lastly, fin suggestions.
Sorry for the rapid fire questions, but I have not purchased a board in many years and I want to make the right decision.
Thanks for everyone’s help.
