Wow if they are giving you the privilege of trying several boards go for it. Start from the smaller size and go up.

I'd think of the Takayama, assuming we aren't talking about Surftech here, as surfable art, but the SP would probably offer better performance - almost certainly.
hi guys, after some sizing info for a BP, appreciate any feedback.
i'm 6'2, 88kg, intermediate surfer, very fit but only surfing once a week at the moment, hopefully more frequently soon.
my everyday board is a HS shred sled (6'3 x 21 x 2.75 = 37.9 ltrs), looking to add a small wave board for 1 - 3ft.
surf on sydney nth beaches, but possibly moving up to ballina area soon.
guessing i'm somewhere between a 5'7 and 5'11 ?
Split the difference and go 5'9". I weigh just about exactly what you do, and I tried out my El Fuego (39.8 l) in shin high surf just because. Going by my experience, I would suggest a bit more foam than that for micro small waves. If the waves you surf typically have more punch, then go with the 5'7". Anything over thigh high and you wont need the extra volume. In any case, the 5'11" is likely too much board.
Me: 6'6" (198cm), 195lbs (88.5 kg), Intermediate surfer (on a good day)
My Boards: 6'3" El Fuego (FST, FCS), 7'0" CI MBM Step -up
Thanks for the input Gnubee
