I just got a CWB ride for my wife to learn on, I learned on a CWB Razr and its a pretty good board also. The longer boards are more stable and surf well, but are slower/harder turning. You may need two boards in the end. One for beginners and a shorter one for the experienced.........they fit in the 07 racks also.
tr6coug may have feeback cuz they are well experienced surfers.
