I have made a lot of Sleds. Through that, the Sled has slowly morphed into what it is today - your best bet for a daily driver in the most commonly occurring surf on the West Coast.
The outline remains on the full side without losing it’s shortboard status. Single concaves with the slightest of double concave between the fins dominates the bottom contours and keeps you moving through the flats or when you need to get somewhere with one quick pump. Tail rocker is set up for speed with a little extra curve in the last 6” to allow for a tighter turning radius.
SURFER: Beginner to Advanced
Intermediate:About your height, maybe a bit shorter but be sure you are hitting a volume you are used to.
Inter-Advanced:2” shorter than your height but keep the volume where you are comfortable.
Advanced:Probably about 2” shorter than your height. Volume can be the same as you are used to in your shortboards.
