Looking for a board for my grandfather, he has a 9'3 in the pink that he loves but finds it just a little too hard to get onto waves with now and is looking to find something different. He's 6'4 190lbs looking for more of a high performance longboard than traditional that can turn well and easily generate speed but have some nose riding capability, not looking for camping out on the nose but be able to pull off a hang 5 or two, either a single fin or 2+1 in the 9'6 - 9'8 range. The waves we surf are pretty punchy beach breaks in the 2-5 foot range but can be extremely difficult to get onto at times with heavy winds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Should also mention he's not looking to go custom.
