so you're looking at like a 140-150 cm board depending on the type, anddd with size 7 feet you may also need a narrow... blehhhh idk man that's going to be tough especially if you don't want to use craigslist or anything like that.
and honestly, don't go 2013. it will be an enormous waste of money since you will most likely be buying brand new.
