What board do i get??

Post by timeeh » Wed Dec 17, 2014 4:45 pm

Hi peoples, just moved back down the coast after a long hiatus and now need a new board. Currently running a "vintage" Mach 8-TX but the poor ol thing is starting to get waterlogged, it is literally leaking out the skin. Anyway just wondering what would be a good board to suit myself at 6'8" but only 85kg not sure wether to stick with a 43" (as the Mach 8 is) or go bigger or even smaller? I have just noticed they now make a new version of the Mach-8 but im thinking i dont really want the old tech on a new board, not sure if thats the case, or the one i have my eye on is the science pocket or the style? So what are peoples thoughts? Cheers.

In all seriousness though, thats my dimensions (last year got down to 78kg for a kickboxing match), and holy shit it is hard a F to get stuff that fits me...
But enough of my ramblings, any ideas on what board to pic? Also or those interested heres a litlle vid of the ol vintage board in action 3wks ago :)

soooo, no other freaks out there??? OK, how about a short list. What would be more preferable for small wave stuff? The science Pocket or the Style? Really like the look of the green and blk Style LTD, but not to sure if it's worth the money?
