Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great pack for in-bounds skiing or light loads. Back zipper access is awesome, especially when the pack is loaded. On the flip side of that, the zipper can be of some annoyance as it does not fit flush into the pack. I would be weary if you are tall, I am 6'4 and the pack is not an ideal fit, although it is a OSFA pack so you should not expect it to be perfect.

Another exceptional suit from XCEL. This is my go to winter suit for winters in Maine. These suits are not only warm but last many seasons. Before this I rocked a XCEL 5/4/3 and used it for 4 to 5 seasons before the liquid tapping began to deteriorate. Bottom line: will keep you warm for many winters to come

Favorite in quiver. I am 6'4' 190 and ride a 6'1. Definitely can ride this board a few inches shorter. This is due to the board being slightly wider, as well as being a little beefier in the nose than a standard shortboard. This gives it more speed and better performance in smaller mushier surf. Not a crazy amount of rocker either. In sum this board will be shorter, wider, thicker,and flatter than your standard shortboard.

I typically ride this board from a little above waist to about head and a half.

Have this board in a 6"2" and love it. I find it works well from chest to well overhead. Will work in waist high if it is punchy enough, but wouldnt be my go to for these conditions.

All in all I would say a very similar board to the Channel Island Whip, though this board is more perfomancy than the Whip. I find the Whip works better in waist to chest mushy conditions while this board excels more in chest to overhead cleaner surf.
