RE: evo or acid
I didn't comment on the PA68 since I assumed he was looking at 06 boards. PA 68 would be a very good size for him. It has a very fast and effective bottom shape and get going early but its still a smaller board than the EVO70 and I don't think the 68 handles smaller waves or bigger sails as well. Like the PA 73 it prefers a more drawn out turn (most noticable in smaller waves) but the feel of the 07 PA 74 and 68 actually differs noticably from that of the PA73.
