    Looking to buy a new SP, 5'2- 5'6?

    Need a little advice on what size SP to get. Im 6'1" and 190 Lbs. Im currently riding a 5'8 Dominator, mostly as a quad with Rusty R2's, Ive always been into shorter wider boards. I actually ride the Dom 4-8 ft. I want the SP for ankle biters to head highish. Any suggestions on what size to get? Im a strong paddler and have been surfing 10 years (23 y/o). And a pretty advanced surfer, any thoughts would be awesome!

    5'7" on order as of tomorrow first thing.
    How do they look given I surf a 5'6" SP I figure the 5'7" Pnator would be good. How are you guys sizing them for the boys relative to what you/they are surfin in the SP?

    True I also think this shape is the closest thing to a hull that I have ridden. There is a so much wetted surface area and planing surface that I have seen people getting suckered into riding them to small. I found when to big it was hard for the board to break the surface tension if that makes sense. What I have surmised is that these seem to be the right size at chin heigth just what I have noticed. Obviously the variable of body weight applies but that is what I have seen :)
