Depending on what level you are at, a 5'6" Hyperlite Broadcast may be big enough to surf the stock ballast. Otherwise, look into some of more advance surfers, like Phase Five and Inland Surfer.

Hope this helps!

Monte, thanks for the thread bump. No Skeez, thanks for the input. That's exactly what I needed to know. The boys taught me to surf last week at csm and I'm looking forward to trying it on the X14.
