I'm going to samoa for my second time to surf the reef breaks... last time I went I took my mini mal which was a bad decision. I'm buy a new board and need help.... i,m 6 foot about 96 kgs and semi fit.... I'v surfed all my life but still havnt found the right board for me... I have a 6'3 quite thin board which is not enough to stay afloat.... HELP :)

Talk to a shaper, like Adrian at Fluid Juice. Other than that, look for a board in the 7'+ x21" range with a fair bit of rocker to handle the drops.
That's what I'd do anyway.
