The volume is fine. These things redline on length before volume in my experience. 6'5" is good for up to DOH for me.

Further info:

-I've been surfing 25 years and have reasonable paddle fitness
-This will be for a step up/travel board
-Current DD is a DHD 6'4" x 21" x 2 3/4" EPS Black Diamond at 39L which has been working really well for me the past few months
-I'm not scared of length...Up until the DHD I hadn't ridden any shortboard smaller that 6'7".

Cheers.


What type of waves? I'd probably go 6'6" either way, but especially if its reef/pocket type of waves. Im around 210-215 and I got a 6'5" which works great.
