  • Looking to step down...

    based on my weight (230lbs) and hight (6'3") and the fact that I had not surfed in a few years, I decided to get back into it on an Addvance 706.

    I like the board in that it has allowed me to regain my confidence.

    I am now looking for something with a bit more performance and more suited to my size.

    More info: I surf in Southern Calif. usually beach breaks.. 2 to 5 feet. I am 42 years old with average fitness.

    Am I correct in thinking that an optimal step down board from the Addvance is the Dom?? What is recommended?

    What size would you guys recommend based on my stats?

    Many Thanks!

    Hi D, welcome aboard happy new year! I think a dom would be a great board for your situation, probably in a 6'6.

      Yeah I agree. 6'6" or 6'8" depending on preferences. If possible demo before you buy so you can refine the length.

        Yeah I agree with these guys, but I might push you up into the 608 or 610 range. One of the guys in the office loves the 608 and he is about your size. He surfs a lot so he is pretty comfortable on lower volume boards. Given that you are stepping downward, you might like having a little added float over the 606.

        Cheers and hope this helps.
