is my surfboard too small?

« on: May 18 2009 09:05:00 »

hey guys,

im 6' 3" and weigh 85Kg. i ride both cornwall and france for a good couple of months every year.

ive got a 7' 2" funboard but while i love how easy it is to get waves i feel like ive already outgrown it.

ages ago, before i knew anything about surfing i bought a 6" fish from a mate for nearly nothing.

ive taken it out a load of times but find myself having to paddle like a demon to get onboard and often nose dive  when i do.

i thought that i would just get used to it but my progress has been very slow.

should i make do and find a way with this board or just bite the bullet and shell out for something appropriate?

any advice? thankyou in advance!

too small, try 6'4", 6'6" depending on your ability...try before you buy!!
