I have been searching for information and opinions for someone in the same situation as myself. I recently moved from the East Side of Oahu and surfed all over the island. My current setup worked well over there, but since then, I have gained a bit of weight and the wetsuit is also weighing me down. I am having trouble getting into waves since I moved to Monterey, Ca.
My Info: 206 lbs, 6', 37 years old, surfing for 25 years. No airs, mostly big turns, try my hardest to surf top to bottom.
Currently riding: Merrick Flyer - 6'3" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8". Surfed it up to 6' Jacko's.

I have been looking for a replacement board that has more float, but maintains the ability to act as an every day board in 2-4' surf (hawaiian scale). I have been looking at a performance hybrid, notably a hellfire or spitfire. What are your recommendations?
