8'4 is as good number.

  8'4.  Thick in the middle at 3 3/16ths, but thin rails.  Can knee paddle it better than my 9'0.  9 feet is too long.  Extra volume goes a long way.  This board paddles like a 9'3 but fits in my car easy.  Ridden every day of our last swell, at times in the most hollow low tide point break conditions around.  Lots of rocker fits into the tube when I can commit.  Rocker and a bit of thickness go well together.  Board is light.  Great flex.  pretty grain.  durable like a chinaboard, but rides much much better because poplar flexes better than plastic.
