I've been hitting Gower over the last couple of winters and have been renting the local foam boards. I feel that its time to move on and buy something which I can use in Gower and also abroad on future surf trips.
I'm 5"8 and 85Kilos of pure muscle!
What would be the general concensus for a 1st board? I'd like to buy something that would be good for catching waves and improving the basics. My goal though would be to buy a shortboard in the future when I've improved.
I'd be grateful if anyone could suggest some options in the budget and midrange prices.
