    Okay: here’s my take home point; to lay all the cards out. Regarding VooDoo: A 4-8 is MASSIVE for a person under 150#. I am 225+ and ride a 4-8 surf style (Chaos Sixer). Often I hop onto my pal’s 4-6 Sixer or blunt DaHonu just for fun. But 4-8 is my size more than 4-6. I am a 6’3” 225# good sized dude on a very nice wave.

    Point being this for surf style sticks: If you’re buying a good, light, well shaped board, you won’t need one so big to ride easily. Needing a big board is a testament to something. It’s either a weak wave, or an inefficient board for some reason. And -typically- speaking, a shorter board is going to be more fun (provided it’s carrying you properly). You’ll be able to slash, hop, air, spin, whatever more easily the shorter a board is. Again, all wave dependent too.

    So I am sure a 4-8 Voodoo is very fast for a normal sized lady....it certainly should be! That’s a huge board. I put 150# and down newbies onto a board a -lot- smaller than that. It’s not a skim either, it’s a glass over foam, very light Lakewakes surf style Bean.

    I am not trying to be a jerk. I am sorry about that if it seems so. I guess I just want to pass on what I have learned in 6 years and -no sh%t- at least 25 boards.

    I am sure a Voodoo will be great if you go that way!

    For $450 I would buy that Nub in 17 seconds. Personally.

    It took me a little longer than 17 seconds but I pulled the trigger on the 4’8” Nub earlier today. I got it in the Merica color scheme even though I did find it on Doomswell website in “Yellow Ice” for $50 more which was tempting as it is a cool color scheme but I couldn’t pass up the ole red, white, blue!!

    I am still trying to find a good board for my 150# and less crowd so keep the thoughts and suggestions coming. I really do appreciate everyone’s input and experience on the subject as I know I have a lot to learn and there are a lot of variables when it comes to this.

    I would really look for a Black Pearl, new or used, to go with that Nubstep. You'll have 2 really solid and nice boards that your crew won't outgrow any time soon.

    I happened to be at the cabin yesterday. Here are the Lakewakes I use for 150 pounds and down. Both 48 inches long. Not sure why I thought 4-4....they’re 4-0.

    I hate to say it, but we gotta lay off the surf talk for a while... this itch is getting bad. And I’m not a wet suit guy. Lol
    And heck yea, anytime y’all are around you’re more than welcome to come play on the SA. I’ll never turn down more wave!
