I'm about to order my Carbon Exile and I'm SUPER stoked, but I just have some last minute questions. I'm 5' 7 and 145 pounds. Should I go with a medium or a med/small? I want some growing room but at the same time, i dont what a huge boat that will hold me back.

I was in your situation, but I'm like 5'10 and 130 lbs, and I needed a board to have room for growing, so I went with the medium. I wish I had gotten Med/Sm in the short run, but in the long run, I'll be set.

but I also skim the gulf, so a bigger board is better for weaker waves

I'd say med/smll. mostly because of your height

12-24-2006, 07:09 PM
haha ok.. any more suggestions?

12-24-2006, 07:10 PM
med small

12-24-2006, 07:11 PM
well i was kinda of thinking if i got a med/small. by the time i outgrew the board, it would be beat up and i would need a new one anyways. say 2 years maybe?

If you skim big waves get the MS small waves M.

Well. aliso and wedge are both within 20 minutes away from me so...

It also factors in how good of a skimmer you are.

I'm 180lbs and 5'11"...I ride a 3/4" M/S Paulo....love it.

Well as of now, I'm leaning towards the med/small. If anything, itll motivate me to become a better skimmer.

to have a board last two years is a long time.. unless you dont go a lot. ;) Im getting a medium/small and im 5'11 170 ish so you should be fine.

I've had my m/s for the past three years (but only skim summers) and it works fine for me. Couple dings here and there but nothing major, keeps floating me out and im 144.

12-24-2006, 08:13 PM
I would go with the m/s. Either way though, it's not like theres a huge difference in the two.

12-24-2006, 08:23 PM
go ms if you are fast. if you think you have trouble getting to waves get a m.

anddd exile is going to be closed for a week unfortunately, due to um weather or yeah weather thats it.
