5'10 seems plenty big enough for your weight imo.

I'm the same size as you, my mate has a 6' SA Mollusc and I have the 6'2", his is 33L mine is 35L . Rode his the other day and 2L makes a difference. Can you get your hands on both boards and have a good feel...I think that's your best bet.

I'm 5'10 and 12 1/2 stone and ride a 5'6" HK. I should add I don't wear a wetsuit. It's really flat and paddles easy. Honestly think it might be the best board I've ever owned. Surf it from 1' to plenty overhead and love it.

Whoah, too much info :lol:

Seriously, they look like they work really well....

I'm a big fan of Craig Anderson's surfing, so may be a bit biased, but I think he's riding one at solid G-land in the new Quik 'Moments' movie and making it all look too easy.

Yeah, he's got a pretty amazing style. Much of his surfing seems to be done with the lower half of his body, with the top half remaining quite static and relatively upright a lot of the time:

Go to the hayden shapes website and there is a chart with suggested volumes for rider weight. Im 72kgs and just bought a 5 6 hypto krypto. If you want a board to grovel on ,or if your not competent, I would go one size up from the size hayden suggests.- If you want an allrounder for clean good waves, and you can surf okay, stick to the suggested sizes.

So I reckon its a choice between a 5 8 and a 5 10 rather than a 5 10 and 6 0 !

I don't want to be a party pooper, but aren't they manufactured by 'Global Surf Industries'? If yes, they are carrying a hefty price tag?

Have now surfed the hypto krypto a couple of times and I love it. Picks up waves super super easy,and you can crank a turn off the bottom with ease ,and its loose off the top. Worth the money IMO, only problem is ,its a bit of a quiver killer, something for absolute junk and this board would cover any situation I rekon, unless you live in hawaii :-D

Good news!

Surfed well over head beachies for last four days here and loved it. Photo below is Maroochydore, I surfed a little further North and popped down here to take some photos (never anybody out at my spot to get a scale (shame 8) )) Maroochydore is generally a foot smaller as it's inside point Cartwright.

Ah, the good old Sunny coast beachie... Had some cracking surfs around there :D

One of the local lads, Alex Baker, is living over there at the moment and I think he's getting some boards from Hayden. Keep an eye out for a skinny goofyfooter popping air reverses and say G'day, he's a nice kid.

Yeah its been pumping round ere. I do miss the luxury of channels though :shock: :lol: Decorator and myself got caught out a cracker. Little undergunned on my rocket, hypto would have been handy....it covers every base really

Sat watching this perfect left bank in front of gf's all day sunday with no-one out. No energy for it myself:
