Hi - new to this forum!
I recently took a surf lesson for the first time, and really enjoyed it and been thinking about starting up, and buying my own board.
i've been told a long board is the way to go for beginners, but as i don't live very near the beach (2 hrs away!), i'm looking for a cheaper option as i don't know how often i can go.
i was wondering what u think of these.

they are posted as learner boards, but they seem quite small. however, when i did take the lesson, the boards they gave us were about that length.
i'm pretty sure they are very dodgy quality being so cheap, but i don't really mind, if they will do the job. i just want to ride a few waves, and if i do enjoy it, and i get better, then i can buy a proper board.
what do you think? should i get one?
