Do you want a surf or skim?If you want a skim you don't want SC,they are surf style.I don't think he builds skims yet.Phase 5 are all skim style.

If you're looking for a phase 5, the Danielo Diamond and Danielo Pro Carbon are very poppy.

If you can goto denver and ride with Squid! Demoing the boards is the way to go IMHO.

I am about you same size and I love the fly Boy by inland surfer.
At the polar bear my favorite board was the walker project signature 4'9".

Make sure you check out the polar bear rankings due out soon also!

X2 for demo! All boards have pro's and cons. And all take a little getting used to. Most of the boards mentioned are a lot more fragile then your current board so you will need to treat it carefully.

I guess one of my issues is that I have never ridden a skim style board. Not sure where I could demo out here in Michigan. I feel like skim would be slightly more but then again. Basically all ive done is some carving on the Giant Koal i have

A nice intermediate board with a price range between a mass produced and custom boards are the triple x boards. Made pretty well and fun. The Nitro and slayer are fun. It won't be to long before you will progress to something a little more serious. I have had a walker project f18. I really enjoy it the next walker board I would progress to would be the signature or bomb pop. I like the sig, but lots of folks enjoy the bomb pop. I have recently ridden a couple of soulcrafts and really enjoyed them too. The Jetty and the sex panther. These two have been my favorites. I see one of these in my near future. plus i like to support small makers that i have had the good fortune of meeting. I did ride an inland surfer swallow and mucus. The swallow was a bit hard for me to move around. The mucus was fun and quick. I enjoy the flyboy as well.
Sorry lots of rambling, hope a few different names give ya something to think about.

Yeah, the Triple X boards can be had for a lot cheaper. I have a used Nitro that I would part with. If you're interested, PM me.
