If you must have a shortboard, I would get a slightly bigger board that's a little thicker and wider so you can catch waves easier and have more stability.

I'm thinking around 6'6" - 6'8", 20-21" wide and about 2 5/8" thick.

If you're shopping on-line I can reccommend a shop in Florida that has new and used boards listed with pics.

Sam, are you just starting out or have you been surfing for a bit and switching to a shortboard?

Josh, The Shapers name should be on the bottom of the board with its demensions and # etc. You can do an internet search using his name to find out who he shapes for.
