Aloha party people
i have a few questions that i hope you guys can help me with.first i want to give you information about me, i am 43 years old been surfing since i was 17, i am 5'6 155 pounds and i live in maui, i surf 3 or 4 times a week. i kinda stopped surfing for about 14 months or so, but i just went on a surf trip and got back into surfing again, i am super stoked on it now!!!! i rode a 6'0 in el salvador and my buddy rode a 5'10 stealth firewire, as well as another friend. the guys were ripping they were both bigger and taller than me than me by 20 pounds and a few inches,yet they were catching waves very easily, it was about 3 to 7 feet most days,and the boards looked like they were really fast, i am hooked.
so my dilemma is what size stealth should i get, i surfed for 4 weeks straight 6 hours a day, i thought my 6'0 poly board was too big. i was thinking of getting a 5'10 for beach break shitties or a 6'0 what do you think i should get?????? or maybe a 5'9 i don't know i'm really confused. i think i have landed maybe 7 airs in my life and im kinda of a power surfer, so for many years i was charging big waves on the north shore of maui, now my home break is a little beach pound and i want a board that can be fun in bad conditions , maui is windy and waves get blocked by other islands. i just want to surf 2 to 8 foot waves no big stuff for me.
