Bound to be some surfers here (know Bumley is).
I've been a few times on borrowed/hired boards. I'm surfing next weekend for two days then in September for five.... probably better value if I get a basic board now, plus it means I can surf locally when the conditions are right.
So I'm pretty much a beginner, once I'm up on the board I'm fine, so I'd love to get something a little smaller than the gigantic learner ones you get at surf schools.
I'm not going to spend much money... (yet, until I know I'll be good at it and keep at it) guessing this sort of thing would be perfect?
PS, nearest surf shop is almost two hours drive away for me.
