now worries.

the boards are supposed to be stronger because of the rail wraps, but still good flex. Sounds good for surfing, but I wonder if the heel dents would disintegrate it kiting.

I was thinking of the 6'4" flyer myself. Never surfed a flyer, but I heard they are decent do-it-alls for smaller waves.

6'4? how much do you weight my friend? For me i think even the 6.8 will not be enough for my weight :lol: i'm going a trip to the usa now and it would be a great opportunity to buy one from there but...
