I'm been surfing a few months on an 8' minimal and i'm getting better every time i get in the water, but lately have started leveling out, i'm having problems when i try sharper turns, i don't want to stay on a minimal and want to progress to a shortboard as soon as i'm good enough.
i've been looking into the fatboy / bigboy flyer boards which seem to be the sort of board i need to progress, does anyone know if thats the right thing for me to do? The local surf is usually small to medium and messy, with the occasional spell of clean surf!
I'm about 5'10'' and 15ish stone, I'm in the gym 2-3times a week and in the water twice a week if there's any surf! what size of flyer should i be looking at?
