  • Size Advice Needed Please - 5'7'' or 5'9''

    Apologies, but this is yet another request for size advice.

    I am looking to purchase a new El Fuego and really cannot decide between the 5'7'' and 5'9''. My local shop has both boards and the 5'7'' is a diamond tail and looks magic.

    To help; i am 5'7'' and 155lbs and currently ride either a 5'8'' x 19 3/4 x 2 3/8 Dumpster Diver at approx 28L of volume and a 5'8'' x 19 1/4 x 2 3/8 JS Nitro at approx 27L of volume. I surf 3-4 times a week waves and light depending in the UK and in good shape.

    I am a little worried about the 5'7'' being a little undersize and the 5'9'' feels like it may be a little big. Its a drying shame that CBD is not available in the uk!!!!

    From the wealth of exeperiance that is out there on this board could you please offer some feedback of the RIGHT size for me.

    Also, a quick run down on the pros and cons of the diamond versus swallow would be great.

    Many Thanks
