Hi, this is my first post.
I've been reading a lot on this forum and there's a lot of great info. I'm looking to pick up a FW but wanted to get some advice.
Background: I'm an avid snowboarder (40 days a year) who likes to surf for fun. i only get out about 10 times a summer, in new jersey small surf. My style is go vertical, bottom turn and just ride down the line. I'm happy with this and i'm not looking to rip. PS: I always stay out of way of the experts and respect the lineup.
Currently I have a 7'6 Yanci Spencer fat guy fish that feels clunky. A 6'6" walden CD mini longboard that's ok. And my favorite, a 6'8" Channel Island Flyer that i ride like a progressive fun board. It's good but epoxy stiff, you need a kidney belt when the chop comes;)
I'm 5'7" and weigh 155.
I want a FW to have fun in the small mushy stuff though i don't do so well on fun shapes - They're too wide up front. Could i get away with a large Dominator or Spitfire? Like a 6'6"?
Thanks for your time. popo
