I just got home from a 2 week trip
I used my 6'6 (Normal board) most of the time.
When we first got there it was huge and I was way out gunned on a 6'8.......but that was just by chance
My recommendation would be your normal short board and a step up....Mini Gun
Also, the offshores can get REALLY strong.  Personally I would rather have had a board with less rocker.
