Hey Elias, you're lucky to be at the perfect weight. Any lighter and I think it would behard to push around some of the boards, any heavier like the rest of us and yoou'd tend to swamp the board. Quite frankly I think you could ride just about anything you wanted to. What sort of experience do you have riding? If you're doing shuv-its in the driveway on your skateboard, you'll probably want to look for one of the skim style boards. Trick Boardz and Inland Surfer are represented well on this board and can help you out. If you're chasing Kelly Slater around, you'll probably want to stay with a surf style board. Shred Stixx, Inland Surfer, Surftech, thewalkerproject.com among others have excellent surf style boards.

It certainly could, but it needs to be REALLY short. 6'2" is TOO big. I ride a 4'2", I doubt you could even find a surfboard that small. If you just want to get started, though, try and find the smallest fish you can, like a 5'0" and you're probably good to go as a start. Good Luck!

Hey Elias, I am not familiar with that board. I can tell you I have surfed with my wakeboard, but it's not easy or pretty. :-) To be honest, I think you'd be better served by trying to get a real wakesurfer.
