6'10 seems to be sweet spot, maybe 6'8 but will it still have the rail and glide when you need it?

Doesnt feel maneuverable, like I am on an 8ft board rather then a 6'10. Perhaps with perseverance it could be ok but I reckon unless it clicks then flick it.

Reading Thuds review it seems the straight rail and it’s need for macking surf. Not a daily driver.

Those Big Barrons look fun.
