+1 to North Jerzy (Hero type board isn't for you). And moving dimensions of a PRO aroiund will ruin the flow (feel of the board)
In the Starboard line I would consider the HYPERNUT a lot of maneverability in a stable platform you can push vertically
If you are interested we offer ZONER DEALs on theseand other boards
Jim- Love ya- (and have bought several boards from you based on your reccommendations)- but the Hypernut surfs TERRIBLY vertically compared to any traditional surfboard shape. (I own one)
Loads of fun on fat mushy waves and does OK in the pocket on bigger stuff- but it has no drive compared to a pro, and finning it up so that it does takes away the skatey feel that makes it such a fun board.
Agree however that messing with dims is a sketchy proposal when done incorrectly on a custom from a production board.
In my quiver listed in my signature- my ' i want performance but still want stability' board is the RNB. Super stable (Granted mine is a little too big for me and thats Why)- but it will still get in a pocket almost as well as my El Tigre which shape compares to the pro. and can be used in the chop.
