Trying to figure out what to do about a new board. I am 5’ 10’ and weigh 180 at most and surf a point break in Ventura Ca. Thats the good news. The not so good news is that I am 66 years old and need paddle power and a fuller shape with volume under chest for picking up waves and a little more in the tail for stability. (It sucks getting old). I have been surfing continually for 50 years and want a board that can get down the line without having to go to a longboard. Right now I am riding a 7 Ft. egg by FC surfboards in Ventura. I need to be up around 50 liters to get the flotation I want and ease of catching waves in the chest to shoulder high range. So maybe you could help me out here with some ideas. I sure would appreciate your advice .

The Switch Blade and The Monster looks very cool with a wider outline. Could you build one in a 7 ft and go a little wider with a little more thickness just to punch a few more liters of volume out of it? Or whatever it takes to keep the integrity of the shape.

While I love the Jordy thruster fins I found it tracked better as a quad in the slightly bigger, steeper stuff yet still having carry through the flatter sections - as Darren says : fun board !
