I had an custom PU McCoy Nugget shaped by the great man himself, single fin, 5'11" x 19 3/4 x 2 3/4. I weight 65 kgs and am 5'7". I am 33 yoa, am fit and have no trouble riding modern shortboards, have surfed for 16 + years and have a quiver of 6 boards for differing conditions. I brought mine for a change up board to add to the quiver. Negative - For me the board lacked drive, the rails were too thick, I slid out heaps and I found it slow and sluggish. The board is not made for smaller surf and is very hard to duckdive. Positives - paddle power. I would try one before you buy as it is such a specialised board, I don't think it is as user friendly as the reviews make out online.
