Unfortunately, this is yet another size thread but your help will be much appreciated.
Looking at purchasing a new El Fuego and stuck on the size, to help; i am 5'7'' 155lbs, in good shape and surf 3-4 times a week, surf depending. I am currently riding a 5'8'' x 19 3/4 x 2 3/8 Dumpster Diver approx 28L in volume and a 5'8'' x 19 1/4 x 2 3/8 JS Nitro approx 27L in volume.
Looking to ride the fuego in waste - head high waves.
I am completely torn between the 5'7'' and 5'9''. Little worried the 5'7'' may be a little under size and 5'9'' a little over sized. Advice and thoughts please?
Finally, really like the look of the diamond tail over the swallow, what are the pros and cons of each?
