have been surfing with my Bic 7'9" mini-mal for over a year now and can pop up ok and ride along the wave and do slow turns on waves around the 2-3 ft size. (east coast)
I want to go faster now and do more stuff but feel this board is holding me back.
im looking at the Bic 6'7" shortboard purely because it is well priced and indestructable like the mini-mal and i want to go shortboard really.
Im around 6ft and 12 1/2 stone.
is this board too much of a leap forward? will i progress on it or just catch nothing and get frustrated? i still plan on keeping my mal.
any advise would be great help
