I would go look at a LF Fish in 5'6" I have a 5'4" and I'm 208lb and I can stay in the pocket, but I wish I had the 5'^" to give me a bit more forgiveness when I fall ball. Mind you I'm surfing behind a 2004 Mobius LS, and even with a shit-ton of water ballast in it. it's not the ultimate surfin wave, but it does alright.
