    Cool, let me know, would be keen for a PE 8'-9', that would save on Her Majesty's Import Duty racket!

    I had a 8'8" PE from the 90's at one point and I'd like to warn you that the jump from a 9'6" Model T to a 9'3" is already a big jump due to the board's outline being a lot more parallel and foiled than a nose rider. So the jump to a 9'0" even more so.

    The difference between riding a 9'0" PE and a 9'3" PE, will only exemplify the design shape in my opinion. A longer rail line and straighter outline fit more with what I personally want out of a longboard. A 9'0" in this outline actually will ride more like a midlength if you are around or above the average sized American man (I know you are British though). I don't know what the waves are like there year round but I see the longer length giving you a lot more versatility.

    Also consider the Harbor Trestles Special, the Hynson Red fin, and the Dewey Weber Iggy model if you are into this type of board. I think the Phil Edwards boards are great, but you never know, you could like one of these even more.

    Hi, thanks for the advise, I'm 6'1", I tried a Mctavish Fireball 9'2", tri fin last, a bit more progressive - enjoyed the manoeuvrability - Thanks for the list of other considerations - one of each please!
