my son (just 10)
tom is a keen beginner (slim, 4' 10") who's currently on a 5'10" bic fish which I'm considering replacing as his twin sister is showing interest. I'm confused though because although I was recommended a 5'10" custom ripper shortboard I also read that this is not a good idea and that I should go for a minimal. We're in UK surf, North Cornwall and since we live in London, not regular. Any advice gratefully received, particularly on size.
