Thanks again for the pictures Tony! Some great action from The Rock with the Vancouver crew, sorry I missed that it looks fun. :!: :D :o

Thanks Tony.

Jen and I had the Rock to ourselves for a bit yesterday, no wind was forecast but was powered on 5.0.

AJ, I think body weight plus 10 to 15 l is good for waves, I'm 86kg and a 96 l is great, 86 if it's properly windy. I use the 96 most.
Say you're 65kg then and 80, 74 probably ok if you find it easy to float over white water, should be good. Also remember there are hookipa down the line type boards with too much rocker, for general conditions better to have an onshore type board that planes easily.

Thanks Ryan. Cool general rule of thumb of weight and board volume relationship.
I have 68L and potentially 74L which match the 10 to 15 L + (58.2 kg +/- 2kg depends on how much baconator I had or TOW on a week) formula you've got. I'm all set then :-)
