I'm ready to pull the trigger, but can't decide which board to go with... I'm 6' 2" 195lbs and have as nice of a wave as a Centurion Avalanche can make. I have an Inland Surfer 4 skim that I love (but I ride it with a large 6 cm fin not the standard small 3 cm fin). I have ridden a Phase 5 Danielo Pro Carbon XL and liked it, but had a tough time staying in the wave at times.

I have read and been told the Model X has a more surf feel, big bottom turns and airs, but when changing from the 3 -" fins to 1" fins it starts to work like a skim style board. The Danielo Diamond has 1 - 1" fin and is shaped and works like a Pro Carbon, but with a "diamond shaped tail" therefore more forgiving than a Pro Carbon and more down the line speed. I wonder how the Diamond would work with a 2" fin...

I lean more towards the skim style tricks, spins board slides, shove-its. If you have had any experience with either of these boards, let me know what you thought, (your body size, wave size and riding style would help too).
