I would like to buy a surfboard and I need some advice.
I only go out a few times a year, because the nearest break is about a 2h drive, and the swell reaches only a weak mushy 3-4ft on a good day.
But I do go on vacation to France at least one week a year to get some proper swell.
Three months ago my girlfriend bought a bic 7.3, which I surfed for 6 sessions. I'm able to catch unbroken waves and follow the green face of the wave to the beach and do some basic turns on it. Next week we will leave for a week to Lacanau and I would like to have a surfboard of my own.
I think the bic has a heavy feel to it and doesn't turn easily, so I was thinking of something a little more responsive, something on which I can progress. I was thinking perhaps a hybrid fish - thruster type board.
I'm 5.9ft tall and weigh only 125pounds.
Four months ago I started going to the gym twice a week. My paddling power has improved a lot since, but I still have difficulty paddling out the bic, because I cannot duckdive it. So I think I could progress more if I could paddle out (a smaller board?) more easily.
So what board ( type,length, width, thickness,...) do you recommend?
