I'm Mike I'm form middle Europe and study in San Diego till january. I'm now surfing for about 1 month (practice every day). I want to buy a surfboard but I don't have enough experience. I'm constantly looking on craigslist and local surfshops for a used board but unfortunately i hadn't much success yet.
I'm 6'1feet tall and weight about 170 lbs.
Would that board be good for me? http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/spo/2626392776.html
I don't have enough money to buy a new board from a professional shaper. What do you think about brands like bic, degree33, island blabla.... for beginners?
Thanks for the help
