    Been looking around for mid-lengths as I'm selling my 7'0" because I felt like it was a big shortboard for me. I know shape plays a large factor into it, as the nose will definitely be more pointed and the tail more pin-shaped. In terms of length, I'm worried that an 8'0" may feel more like a longboard. 7'6" maybe the perfect size, just looking to see what insight jamboards has to offer. Thanks!

    What's your height/weight?
    What's your typical break/surf conditions?
    Paddle strength/endurance?
    I think some more details would help people give you some better insight.

    Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 180
    Surf: I mainly surf out of Sunset Cliffs, Ocean Beach/OB Pier and the Jetty, so a versatile board that can surf ankle biters all the way up to head-high/over-head waves
    Endurance: Pretty strong, I have no problem paddling any board in most surf

    Hit up Bob Mitsven, tell him all this info, and order a Magic. Let him work out dimensions.

    Ankle to overhead is a big ask.

    I would order a 8’3 Andreini Serena. It’s seriously one of the most versatile boards I’ve ever ridden. Pure Glide and speed. Great turns and I love mine in small waves all the way up.

    Do you want to crank turns, glide, get tubed?
