Hey guys I’m hoping that maybe some of you can give me some helpful information. I haven’t surfed before and want to know what a good board would be for me. I am 5’10” 150 pounds. I have been to a few surf shops but they have all told me different things about what size board to get…. One told me a short board from like 6’6” to 7” and another said nothing under 8 feet for a beginner. (Keep in mind I’m in jersey so the waves aren’t huge) I have also been recommended a bic. I don’t really know much about those boards except that they are plastic and wont ding very much so I can sell it back to the store where I bought it if I want to upgrade. But why have a heard so much about people getting a bic then selling in a few weeks when they get a little better at surfing.
Help I don’t know what boards to look at because I have been told too many different things. (I am going to rent one in 2 weeks when I have a weekend off and hopefully that will help with my decision)
