Would shaping a combination of these two boards be possible?
Thinking of shaping board for significant other to add to quiver. He currently rides an 8ft Doyle Softtop that is ~72L. He loves that board but has cited interest in getting a funboard and something a little smaller for winter. His current board is pretty impossible to turtle roll. We ride at Ocean Beach in San Diego and in North County, San Diego.
He's 5' 6" and is 160 lb, so his volume would be about 40 L based on his ability level/guild factor. He prefers a little more volume as someone who's not quite the best at paddling, so something 50-65 L would be ideal for him. He has ridden a couple of my boards (~30-45L) and they are a little low on the volume side for his personal preferences.
Any additional suggestions are welcome.
