Hey, I'm new to the forum so here is my deal:
Lately I've really been wanting to start surfing but I'm really not sure what board I should get. I did some research online but I don't feel like the stuff I read applies for me..
I've been skimboarding for over 10 years, I've also done snowboarding, wakeboading, skateboarding, windsurfing, kiteboarding, longboarding and a whole lot more. Even though I know none of these sports are completely like surfing, I feel like they give me some experience that the average beginner would not have. Specially with skimboarding since it is a lot like surfing when it comes to doing wraps and arials..
I'm 174 cm tall and 74 kg if that info is important to choosing a board. I live in Stavanger in Norway. I don't know much about waves for surfing but from what people say they are pretty good for beginners.
Hope you guys can help me out with knowing what board to get
