These boards look so fun. I'm stepping down from a 7'2" CI waterhog that I love and get around great on. But now I want a shorter board for small wave fun, but I don't want to give up the easy paddle that comes along with a longer board. This is because I'm a bit older and my paddling isn't that great to begin with. Which of these boards would you guys suggest as the easier one to paddle out and to catch waves with? and recommended size too would be greatly appreciated. I'm 5'6" and 160 lbs. Thanks!
