« on: June 16 2008 10:06:00 »

Cqan any body give some advise on the sizing and which one, I am 6ft and weigh 70kg's and am learning at the moment, but I also preffere steep learning curves and I have learnt alot more on a proper baord then a foamy. Thats just me

I have bought many boards that were too small, too radical for my level of surfing. Until my mate gave me the advise:

Gotta catch' em first if you want to surf them.

So i bought a bigger board:

easier paddling > more wave catching > more and longer wave riding > more improvement in my surfing

I depends on how thick the foil is.

I more went by your fist statement. Youi may not catch as many waves but you sure will get the feel better proper.
It's like you can learn classical music first and then think your going to blues or rock. Follow your own heart.
Webber boards are all nearly allways top boards It's like you want a fat girlfriend first and work your way up to a stunner.
Wedder boards are generally up with the stunners.
Go for it.   I've a 6'8" now but I reckon I used to surf 6' boards heaps better.
