Ronix Koal sizing
 
I'm thinking of giving the Koal a try but am unsure of the size. I'm 240 and have already surfed a broadcast for a while. I surf a Calabria team V that puts out a decent wave with factory ballast. Can I get away with the 5'0 or should I get the 5'6? I'll be the fattest person riding it LOL.

Thanks,
Brian

I had a 5' and it was ok for me, i'm 190. Don't know if a 5' will carry you unless your wave is a beast. I ended up selling mine after 2 seasons and had Soulcraft build me one. If I had to do it all over again, custom built would have been my first choice, the overseas stamped out boards are a waste of money (for me) now. Not tryin to bash any manufactures, so no need to flame me. Just sayin, now that I've ridden a custom build I'll never go back......

Thanks 911,
Totally understand that custom would be the way to go. I'm primarily a hydrofoiler and surfing will be something to change things up during the day so I'm looking for a price point board. Not necessarily the cheapest......but decent. I like to surf but I really don't see the need for an advanced board for what me and my crew will be doing.

I'm open to recommendations as well. Just found a good deal on the Koal so I was wondering which one would fit me better.

I would steer clear of a koal, those are garbage. I had one that delammed in about 2 weeks. I would get something that isnt fragile and fits in wakeboard racks to start

XXX composite pro
Liquid force fish
Byerly hazard
Liquid force custom

Any of these decent for someone better than a beginner but not looking to go much farther? For a big dude too....
