Is this board too small?

Postby Diegohanssen » Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:27 am

Hi guys, I am 5,9 and weight is 185lb.. I have been surfing intermittently for 4 years in a 6,0 fish that I had to sell a while ago.. I was looking for used and new boards, and I was wondering if a 5,8 is too small for me even if the it's volume is 38. Would the volume compensate? I mainly surf beachbreak waves between 3 to 6 feet.

Dimensions: 5'8" x 23" x 2 7/8"

If you have to ask the question, then probably yes!
