what board for 4-6 Feet? - Pretty much any board you feel comfortable taking out in that size will do. Margs is a lot of fun and pretty laid back when it's that small. Beware though, if your in a surf shop or pub in town, and a local tells you it's 4-6 feet, then it's more likely 6-8 feet plus (3 head high or bigger). It's their perogative to estimate down the size a bit. I suppose they think it shows they have balls of steel ;) Margarets takes on totally new dimension when it's 8 feet plus, though. The waves start to become moving mountains above this, and the broken boards and leggies start to fly around. Bring along your big wave gun just in case.
