Hey everyone....well spring break is coming up so i am planning to buy a board soon so that i can learn. the only problem is is that i know nothing about surfing or about what kind of board i should get. I live in miami so i know there is like no waves here, however my cusin tells me that she goes up to ft. lauderdale b/c they get some waves. I know the waves are small too. So i need to know what type of board i should get...im 5'3 and 112lbs.....i dont know if my size has anything to do with the type of board i should buy. So if anyone can help me...please do. and if you have any information on surfing to give me...like terms like heat and stuff like that, dont hold back. i'd really appreciate it.
