I may have just committed a cardinal sin, saying 'SUP.' If so, I apologize. I picked up my interest in surfing again last year, and I've referenced the board I have (6'6 single fin) before. Since then, I picked up orders, had to move, had surgery, and a couple of other things. Now, with summer coming on and things settling down, I have the ability to get back on the water. Here's the thing - I live on the FL panhandle, and waves around here are usually medium mush or choppy.
I'm considering buying a new (used) board to get in some water time. I want to be able to go as much as possible, have fun, that kind of thing. The charts that the website has are helping - I'm 150lbs at 5'8", so I match up pretty well with certain boards. But, given my area, I want to be sure that I'm going to get the most use out of the board I get. So, I'm torn between a SUP for surfing and a straight longboard. Anyone have any thoughts for someone my size and with the surf I deal with?
