Looks good toots.

The 6’10 rabbidge 2+1/single was ideal when I was 78, not 89kg. Its feeling like i need more foam now, as the 2 5/8 thick with a rolled deck and low rail feels a bit boggy at times.

Yep do it Hatchy. I have a smaller egg, but it is excellent. If you want foiled rails - ask for them. Some of the onboard eggs are pretty beefy.

Yeah I think I’m gonna get one. 6’8 bonzer egg with knifey rails. Should cover a lot of conditions and suit my style of surfing pretty well.

This review sounds like what I’m after.

7.2 is a fair bit of board, go smaller for an all rounder.

That review. I’ve never had a bonzer that “tracks”.

Great if you surf back foot.

If the 6'10" is feeling small wouldn't you want something bigger than that, not smaller?

yeah, i'd be going something like 6'8 x 21 x 2 3/4. for head high to DOH. punchy beachbreaks, reefs, points.

longer rail i'd only use for knee to shoulder high or bigger than DOH. otherwise it gets it the way.

@ steve - 6'10 is only feeling smallish in the meat sense. not rail length.
