Been out a few times on this board now and getting the feeling I may be a bit too heavy for it! Looked on bic's website and according to their ideal specs, I am about 3 stone too heavy!! I am catching waves but after about 3 seconds of standing up I've stopped and have to bail. If there aren't big waves, I feel as though the board isn't going to push me.
If I sell my board and get something a bit longer and get used to that, when I downsize, what am I going to go for? As proven, this length is too light or do normal boards (as in not plastic, so proper fibreglass or whatever they are) float more for their size than plastic ones.
I'm aiming to lose weight anyway, starting to get a good solid diet on track and starting gym from payday but I am a large build anyway!
ps. Dan do you still have that board?
