Once I've done a bit of saving I reckon it will be time to splash out on a new longboard. After something which is probably an all rounder - can use in crappy summer days (UK) and in medium surf - if I get better then maybe in some bigger stuff. Want to be able to give noseriding a go but also being able to simply speed down the line - reckon I'll need slight nose rocker. I'm near to 6ft tall and getting near 14 stone (190 lbs). I'm never going to be a superstar at 42 but don;t want something I will get bored of.
Any recommendations on boards and length - was thinking 9ft 2 maybe and any thoughts on whether it is worth getting volan glassing (and what weight?)
