7'10". Good for catching waves on good days but not a great board on smaller, mush ire days. Looking for a fun board, wider nose but still able to carve turns

The DI board is 8'and would like to go smaller for better manuevarability and performance. Looking for a good go-to travel board.

For the geezer. You can go back to a short board. Gets you into the big fast ones with a carving shape that you can ride more like the short board of your youth than the log you bought when u turned 40. This board is a blast. Should have bought one 10 years ago.

Great board for a big older guy that still wants to get into challenging waves. I'm 64 250lbs and have had Desert islands for over 10 years. Paddles well and can handle 2' to 10'. More maneuverable than you would think and very fast down the line. This is not a micro lite board for a 20 year old guy that's 5''8" 140lbs. They have plenty of options. This board is for older big guys like Rusty himself.

Great board -- big advantage in paddling for its size. Would be better if could be more snappy
