What board?

Postby FIND » Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:52 pm

Hey guys!

Looking for my first board although i have been surfing for around two years. I'm 5'11 pretty light at around 10stone and would say im an average surfer, inbetween beginner and intermediate. I'm looking for a board which has some volume and that i can catch waves with but that i can progress a lot on and keep for a long time.

I have been looking at these boards

7s cog ( would want a 6'6" but msw only have 6'9" in now?)
7s fuse would be more difficult i know as more of a traditional shortboard but would allow me to progress
quiver depletor
quiver fat barstard ( although says only up to 4ft waves which could be a bit limiting as i progress?

Any comments reviews advice would be awesomeee!

Thanks in advance

aloha

Hey Find,

I can thoroughly recomend the Cog but a 6 6 will be too corky for your size IMO. I got the 6 3 and it's just right, 82kg's, 5' 10" and probably over twice your age.... :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the advice i was tempted to go for a 6'3 but thought it might be a too bigger jump from the shortest board ive riden in my two years surfing is a 7'0" minimal! also does anyone know where you can get these in UK apart from msw as they dont have the size i want in :(

Have you contacted MSW to see if they can get you one?

If not, there is this guy in Germany who seems to have every 7S surfboard..http://cgi.ebay.fr/Surfboard-7S-COG-6-3--/350558554905?pt=DE_Sport_Wassersport_Wellenreiten&hash=item519eeb0b19
