1- i want to know Oldmans secret spot.... Seriously though, I am 6"2' and weigh in at a beautifully slight 110kg-ish. I am quite happy on my 9"6' McTavish but struggle on my 7"6'cheap as chips minimal. I am very seriously considering purchasing a second hand fish (i will post brand in reply as I am on phone so cannot do both now.) Basically it is an epoxy fish 7"8' x 22(i think) x 3". I will be getting it at half price with bag and lease and in vgc. Is this a good way to go? I want something that I can get out through surf where my Mal acts as an anchor. To big? Not big enough for me? I would love feedback from fish owners as I have never surfed a short board shape. P.s. I an beginner to intermediate. Certainly not good. cheers.
