I'm really interested in the Sweet Potato. I'm 5' 10" and weigh about 155 pounds. While it seems that most people my height are getting their SP at around the 5'2" - 5'6" range I was thinking somewhere in the 5'10 - 6' range. I've only been surfing for about a year and I currently own a 7' fun board and a 6'6" "short"board. I love riding the 6'6" but my wave count really suffers when I'm facing less then ideal conditions and when I'm not in top paddling condition(which lately seems to be most of the time). These two condition usually make my 6'6" a pain to paddle most of the time. While with my 7' I can get more waves I don't like how unresponsive it is. What I'm essentially getting at is, what is your opinion on length(I'm essentially a advanced-beginner) and my choice of the SP my needs.
Thanks so much!
PS: I surf in Central California which unlike most of California isn't blessed with amazing waves. Thanks for the help again!!
