How wide should a 6'2 shortboard be?
Asked By jordy,Last Answer By Greg Norman At 2011.05,1 Answers

at the moment i've got a 6'2x18 1/2x2 3/8 but i'm finding it bogs to easily, and while its great doing power maneuvers and snaps its not very open minded regarded new school moves and aerials.
i'm in the market for a new board and would value your opinion. i surf i really wide range of conditions but this board would be used for 2-4ft (aus measurements) with varying quality and power.

i'm 6'2 and 80kg btw

Should I get a shortboard? What kind?
Asked By Hi,Last Answer By AMPhoto At 2011.05,1 Answers

I learned on a longboard and I stood up on my first try..I can turn and paddle well(on a longboard) and I've gone surfing around 6-10 times for about 5 hours each time...
I'm 5'1 1/2 and 13, and I weigh a bit less than 90 pounds. I live in San Diego(waves are nice). I think the only issue I had with riding a longboard was that I had difficulty moving it around it the water.(I wasn't on the board, I was using my hands)
So, should I get a shortboard? If yes, what kind?

Moving onto a shortboard?
Asked By Cory1691,Last Answer By Jasone 2 At 2011.03,1 Answers

Considering trying surfing on a shortboard, just wanted to know the main differences to a funboard and if theres anything that i need to do differently, the main thing im wondering about is where do my feet go because im under the impression your back foot goes right to the back of the board, also why do people on shortboard always bounce right after they pop up?

6'0 and my weight is 185-190. I ride a 6'2, and have been on a 6'2 for years. the lightest weight through all of that would have been 175 180, the highest weight being 200. was thinking of maybe trying something different, what do you guys think?

Transition From Longboard to Shortboard?
Asked By .:hoshi:.,Last Answer By Surfammo At 2011.03,1 Answers

I've been surfing every week ever since surfing school was over, on a 8' longboard. I've pretty much gotten used to catching the waves, doing a couple switches, and surfing backwards. I've been thinking of switching to a shorter board right now. Maybe a 7'? 7.5'? I have no clue how long the board should be.

There's also surf board rental shop across the beach. So I was thinking of just going there. Except, I never really like the foam boards because of my prone to skin irritation.

So... Should I just buy a certain length board. Or should I just start off renting boards.
