This is a bit of a crosspost, I posted earlier under Hellfire, but they pointed me toward the Addvance. I just found out today that there is only a 6'10" Addvance available, everything else is at least 3 weeks of waiting. So, do you guys think I'll be alright on a 6'10"? Should I wait it out for a 7'2"? Or should I just find something else floaty enough?
I'm trying to decide between the Addvance in 6'10" or 7'2" or if I should get a step down board between a longboard and shortboard. I'm 33, 225lbs and 6'6", I've ridden longboards mostly in the 10'-11' range up to head high for a couple years, took a year off, and have done some SUP surfing the last few months. I don't really want to get back into longboarding (can have that fun on a SUP), really want to go shorter, what do you guys think I should do?
