    Yeah, I have the 5'10". It's a little on the small side for my petite frame(240#). It's also a better board than I am surfer. Don't know where you're located, but you are welcome to try it out in the bay area, or buy mine. I'll hook it up!!!

    Yeah...I can't decide if the 5'10" is better for me or just go for the 5'5". Im 5'11" and 150. I am leaning more towards the 5'5".

    Yeah, I think the 5'5" is more in your range, depending on how your paddling is. Then again, for $250 you could have a 5'10"...

    No, definitely not hard to initiate turns. I think the website describes this board as for 1-4' waves. Groveler, no? At my height and weight, I need early into the wave, so basically I can't paddle the board fast enough. Also, in smaller waves I need more surface area, as I tend to sink the board. I'm sure this could be solved if I was better at paddling and could generate speed more efficiently. The SC website has weight ranges for the boards, and I ignored this with the G-Deck. I was hoping because I made the Pumpkin Seed work, this would work. Not the case.

    Board is still available.

    Pumpkin Seed size is 6'8". The deck on the g-d is a little short, but the board is 5'10", and I'm used to longer. Just need a little more push on the paddle for smaller waves.

    We seem to be having a little problem with communication, here. I will not, ever, attempt to remove the Kilz from this board. It doesn't come off with any kind of thinner, and that leaves scraping. The board is not "grody", as you saw from the multiple pictures I sent you. There is no chipping, as this stuff simply does not come off. You can offer me $1,000, but I'm not going to try to remove it. I don't know you, nor do I have any assurance that you would buy the board if I did scrape the paint off. The board was offered for $250, because I wanted to move it. You're wasting my time.

    Hah! The bottom line is that I'm not doing business with you. Also, the way this forum works is NOT where a 9-post JONG calls out a 1,059-post pillar of the surf forum and calls him an asshole. Go screw yourself. Also, if you're trying to make this board the first in your quiver, you are a pathetic moron.

    na bro whats pathetic is a 240 pound guy trying to surf this board in the bay area talk to me when u get out of that shit hole and come down here and surf, because these breaks are way too good for a monster trying to surf a board who's more than 50 pounds out of the weight range. LATE

    I've recently cut down. Don't know where you are, but you obviously don't know shit about waves. Again, you are trying to buy your first board for your quiver with a 5'10 groveler. Have a great life, but leave supermodel alone.

    I have to agree with BS720. Why would he ever waste his time customizing the board for someone he doesn't know for a couple more bucks. By the board for $250 and do it yourself or look elsewhere and the next time you try to buy a board loose the southern california attitude.
