I am moving to California after I complete my Army training in Georgia and Missouri next May. Where I'll be is about four hours from San Diego and two hours from LA and I intend to get back into surfing after a hiatus called deployment: (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14875).
I saw the website for one of San Diego's oldest surf shops: Pacific Beach Surf Shop where Dennis Murphy shapes. I'm thinking of getting an egg (I've not surfed for a year and some change and I was a fair surfer back then) and I'd like to get one shaped for me and put a paint scheme on there with the word ARMY written into it. They recommend eggs for beginners (I'm still at beginner level). Would veteran surfers over on this forum agree?
Also what sort of wetsuits would you recommend for Southern California surfing?
