I have been surfing for about 6 months now and have been renting 8ft foam boards. I can pop up quite quickly on them at this stage and I am having fun but I need to buy my own board.
I am pettie, 5ft 3 anf 7.5 stone which i think is 112lbs? So I am light. I want to go for a shortboard as I feel I can pull it off being tiny. I was thinking 6'6'' which still is over a foot longer than me. I am still only a begineer so maybe this could be a big mistake assuming I would have an advantage on a shortboard being short?
What do you think? Thanks.
