Hi - After years of good service I sold my 6'4" Altenator. It was too big for me anyway and I dinged in Mexico so it's a good excuse to update my standard SB. I'm kind of leaning toward the 6'0" MB but I'm not sure about the thick or the thin version. I'm 5'10" and 165 lb (like Kelly Slater just don't quite surf as well as he does, ha, ha) and my standard board in NY/NJ is a 5'10" Spitfire although sometimes I feel I could catch waves with a 5'8" SP just as well. I'm 41 but the gym is paying off and I paddle better today than I ever have. I need a HPSB for when it's steeper and punchier especially on surf trips. I thought the 6'0" MB thick with 30 liters would help the transition from the 34 liter Altenator but I wonder if it makes that much of a difference for catching waves and I might be better off with the thinner board and less foam. Any thoughts?
No announcement yet.
6'0" Michel Bourez thick or thin?
