Mint website and forum, realy good stuff! I have recently been getting a bit stale with my surfing and have been researching Firewire boards. Let me just say reading through the forums and looking through the boards has got my super keen to get a couple of Firewires and lit the spark for me again. My current quiver consists of a small wave board, performance board, and a step up board for when it gets hairy. All three boards are fibrglass. My performance board is 6'0, 18 3/8, 2 1/4 and my stats are 5'11, 66kgs, 27 years old, quite fit and been surfing for around 13 years. I have been planning on going slightly smaller and slightly wider with my performance board looking at the 5'10, 18 1/2, 2 1/4 alternator at 25.9 litres.
My question is would the Alt be a good choice for an above average level surfer? I am definately not sponsership material, but compared to the average level local i surf pretty good.
Any help would be much appreciated, and thanks for getting me frothing to go surfing again!
