Will a 5'6" spitfire be too small?
I have an opportunity to get a 5'6" spitfire(brand new) for a great price. I'm worried it might be too small because the buyer guide says that for my weight(175lbs) the smallest recommended spitfire is 5'8". Right now, I use my 6'0" Taj model firewire for pretty much all waves, but it's tough to surf in smaller waves, which is why I'm looking to buy this SF. The 5'6" SF has more volume than the 6'0" Taj so I was thinking it might be ok. I was wondering if you guys thought the 5'6" SF is going to be too small for me.
The waves at where I am right now(college) are usually waist high and a little soft.
